Product/Service Summary

ToRoots provides a supporting eco-system to co-create experiential travel products.

India has a potential to offer lacs of travel experiences. Yet only a handful are available because those who can offer a travel experience – say a farmer in Chhatisgarh in a village rich in tradition and culture – do not have the knowledge and resources to create, productize, market and sell the travel experience.

ToRoots is a unique solution wherein they put together a variety of resources to collaborate and co-create travel experiences. Imagine a person in Bastar collaborating with a travel blogger + travel industry expert + photographer to create a unique travel experience in his village. We plan to provide these curated experiences on existing travel platforms. Our own platform will be their ‘virtual showroom’ to test and showcase travel experiences.
