The Austin-based company also recently announced expansion to Toronto and Vancouver.
The company created a website and free iOS and Android apps that allow travelers to discover unique places in a city that only a local might know about. Its target market is a service created by and for millennials.
Last October, Localeur closed on $4.2 million in venture capital financing. Joah Spearman and Chase White, both former employees of Bazaarvoice, founded the company in 2013 and launched right before SXSW. Silicon Hills News did this profile of the company.
“In 2013, Localeur was named the best new startup by Austin Monthly and has been named one of the top travel apps by “The Today Show”, Forbes, TIME, Travel & Leisure, BET, Black Enterprise, Examiner, MSN, MTV, Men’s Journal, and others since,” according to a news release. “To date, Localeur has captured local recommendations exclusively from locals on more than 10,000 of the best local bars, restaurants, shops and points of interest in more than 40 major U.S. cities from Austin and Boston to Los Angeles and New York City, and, now, Toronto and Vancouver and London.”
