About the First Global Gastronomy Tourism Startup Competition
The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the Basque Culinary Center (BCC) are hosting the First Global Gastronomy Tourism Startup Competition as part of the upcoming 5th UNWTO World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism. The mission of the Global Gastronomy Tourism Startup Competition is to identify challenges, projects, and major innovations that will be transforming the gastronomic tourism sector in the near future. The competition is part of a global initiative that aims to support startups promoting sustainable innovation and bringing new technology into the tourism and gastronomy sector.
SynchroLife is a social restaurant discovery service that helps diners find good restaurants fast and reliably. The social media-style app interface encourages reviews of the best restaurants and experiences, creating a database of quality recommendations. SynchroLife then guides each individual user to the best restaurants as quickly as possible by learning their dining preferences and analyzing them with the preferences of other users. The service is currently available for both iOS and Android smartphones in over 155 countries and four languages (Japanese, English, Korean, and Chinese).
SynchroLife is the world’s first restaurant discovery service to include a token economy and solves both restaurant search problems for diners and marketing problems for restaurants by rewarding core users with token rewards for reviews and diners with cashback rewards for their meals.
SynchroLife aims to build a global platform that allows for food lovers and travelers from around the world to connect and find local recommendations for food and restaurants no matter where they go. SynchroLife’s goal is to help improve people’s lifestyles by reliably guiding them to the best possible dining experience every time they eat out.
