As a Drexel University based venture, Silk is an up-and-coming platform in the travel ecosystem looking to drive more involvement in the culture of destinations. Through the experience and creative aspects that independent guides have to deliver, we believe that giving them a better platform to showcase their skills can bring travelers closer to their destinations to gain more value out of the culture that surrounds them. The platform will focus on increasing the value of technology available to independent guides and their businesses and increasing the value of local discovery for tours and activities for the end user or traveler. By facilitating interactions between guides and travelers, we can decrease the amount of friction it takes for travelers to find the desired experiences that fit their needs.
