Company Summary

Raleigh&Drake is a discovery platform powered by the knowledge of your community and trusted influencers, whether for your next exotic trip, or night out on the town. The average person spends 30 hours on 25 different websites when researching travel. ‘Friends and family’ is statistically the most preferred resource for recommendations and insight. We reduce countless hours of online research into a few simple clicks.

Moreover, built as a network spotlighting the curators of the world, Raleigh&Drake will be the place where individuals, organizations and companies build up their brand cache in the travel space. Our goal is to build a travel brand that reflects the value system of millennials while leveraging their social travel recommendations to build the definitive social network for travel and experiences.
