About Aarti

I'm a co-founder of the travel startup, www.YourLocalCousin.com, and we just launched a new product in the B2B space. We build custom APIs for hotels so their guests can book curated tours and activities directly from their platform. Think dessert tours in the West Village, backstage access to the Lion King's costume closet and motorcycle tours of Brooklyn. We are starting with hotels in NYC and currently have a few partnerships in place. We are currently seeking tech talent as well as advisors in the hotel space.

Your Local Cousin was founded in 2015 as a peer-to-peer on demand platform where travelers could find a like-minded "Local Cousin" for custom trip planning via itineraries, Skype calls, texts etc. for $10 - $60. We have leveraged our network to pivot into the B2B space.
