Springwise: A Peer-To-Peer Marketplace For Experiences
Gidsy bills itself as 'a community marketplace for authentic experiences. It promises to provide a place where anyone can host an activity as well as simply finding something fun to do.
It’s been a while since we featured Sweemo’s online auction for experiences, but recently we came across something similar. Based in Berlin, Gidsy bills itself as ‘a community marketplace for authentic experiences.’
Now in beta, Gidsy is still gearing up for launch. Once it does, it promises to provide a place where anyone can host an activity, as well as simply finding something fun to do. Walking tours guided by locals, ‘nature hikes with wild cavemen’ and meals at exclusive pop-up restaurants hosted by top chefs are all among the experiences Gidsy anticipates finding listed on its site. Those who list activities can do so for free; when an event gets booked, Gidsy charges participants a service fee of 10 percent. For those browsing the site, Facebook integration can make it easy to see what friends are up to, enabling them to easily combine plans and meet up while trying something new.
Gidsy is currently focused on activities hosted in Berlin and New York City, but it hopes to expand soon. One to partner with toward that end?
