London Traveltech Lab member PhotoSpotLand has launched a crowdfunding effort aimed at securing up to £200,000 investment.
One of the original members of the London & Partners’ and The Trampery travel start-up incubator, the firm provides detailed information for travellers on how to snap the perfect pictures.
As well as a resource for travellers, PhotoSpotLand business model is to develop photomapping campaigns to tourist board, tour operators and visitor attractions.
Founder and chief executive Mario Bucolo said: “We solve two separate problems. On the user side we offer a service to share spots and technical information to improve the photographic results and discovering new places. The community provides exact locations for great PhotoSpots, support and inspiration.
“On the client side we offer services which will give access to crowd sourced images and information – allowing these companies to join the trend for community content without the need to harvest it themselves.
“The bridge between these two is the function of PhotoSpotLand – using the crowd to create a story for the destination, a reason to visit and then hooking you straight up with a way to achieve that.”
The crowdfunding push on Invesdor.com has so far raised just over £25,000 from four investments. The firm is offering between 5% and 13% equity and is seeking to raise between £75,000 and £200,000.
