THE BIG IDEA
“There are no alternatives, there are only solutions.”
WHAT IS GEOGUIDES?
GEOguides is a digital travel guide and media platform concept for the responsible travel community. Our goal is to create a universal web and mobile application that will help to connect travelers with green travel businesses and outdoor activities around the world.
WHO IS GEOGUIDES?
GEOguides is a newly established California Benefit Corporation. This is a new type of for-profit corporate entity, legislated in 28 states, that includes a positive impact on society and the environment in addition to profit as its legally defined goals. The purpose of a benefit corporation includes creating general public benefit, which is defined as a material positive impact on society and the environment. Our specific benefit purpose is to “distribute art and geographic knowledge that encourages responsible travel and recreation, promote the conservation and preservation of our planet and its people, use business to inspire and implement solutions to environmental problems.”
Currently GEOguides is being supported by its founders, a group of dedicated volunteers and media professionals as well as in-kind donations by corporate sponsors. We are currently in the seed funding stage and are seeking investors that are interested in achieving a triple bottom line of people, planet and profit.
