Voted as one of The Huffington Post’s Top Ten travel apps – Pearlshare is gaining popularity among both subscribers and angel investors alike.
The mobile and web-based platform for building and sharing personalised travel guides has secured funding of £1mln, and as Chairman Michael Liebreich explains the business evolved from his own predicament which was a lack of information when researching the best places to visit.
Pearlshare offers a platform for amateur and professional travel writers, bloggers, enthusiasts, tourists and the curious who share the unusual, the quirky, and the pockets of paradise that even the fastidious Lonely Planet Guide editors missed on their expeditions.
Liebreich’s mission is to eradicate the fake reviews which had plagued other travel recommendation sites. But essentially it is about becoming a key player in the information sharing economy and be the best place to go if you are seeking the best hipster grooming salons and places where the more elusive Pokemons hang out.
