Company Summary

Localeur is a community of locals who share their favorite places to eat, drink and shop. Unlike review sites like Yelp, only locals can contribute content and all the content is in the form of a recommendation rather than a review. We plan to build a marketplace where all places mentioned on Localeur are synced with a transaction and are currently monetizing through advertising (exclusively with Tablet Hotels), and sponsored content.
