We are a team of Travel Industry Veterans working together to bring innovation to the world of Tourism and Hospitality. The ProNatives project aims to reduce communication difficulties when travelling abroad connecting bi-lingual locals to foreign tourists, through a language match.
1. Our Vision
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness” said Mark Twain, but how can you deeply understand a different culture if you don’t understand their native language?
Indeed, you wouldn’t even believe how many locals around you can speak your native language! They may be students, expats or have same background as yours. They need practice and they can tell you stories about that world you want to discover!
2. How did it all begin?
Have you ever experienced the frustration of being in a foreign country, need to ask for information and even if you’re surrounded by lots of people no one seems able to help? Well, this frustration was a daily hassle during my first trip to Japan.
Do you want to know what happened?
3. Our Mission
ProNatives has been designed to be the bridge between different cultures and different languages. The travel Industry is rapidly moving towards the “Do It Yourself” type of booking, which often doesn’t involve a tour guide or an interpreter.
So let a bi-lingual community answer the traveler needs in their own words!
