Pobyty

Bolívar - Cartagena

Description of Social Entrepreneurship

Pobyty is a virtual platform that gives the opportunity to less known people and communities to stand out showing the best part of themselves through tours that can be accessed by any tourist in the world.

Communities or people should offer an unusual tour, a tour that highlights their more traditional qualities, showing part of their cultures and customs; so that in this way the tourist can know the true face of Colombia.

What led you to create your Social Entrepreneurship?

I lived abroad for 1 year and it was very hard to be discriminated against for being Colombian, because the first thing they thought about my country was drugs and war, so I understood that the best way to change that thought would be to show that Colombia has a lot of culture and history that offer, but there is nothing that gives the opportunity for minorities to show themselves and that is how I thought of a platform that offered a different tourism, which focused only on hidden and hard to find talents and places. A platform where anyone could be a guide and show their country from their own point of view.

How does your Social Entrepreneurship impact your community?

My parents are born in town, so I grew up learning their traditions and living their struggles. This project will help hundreds of Colombian towns where there is a lot of talent that are not yet known to have the recognition they deserve so much and obtain an economic gain for showing the world what makes them unique, so that they can impact their own development. community.

What do you dream of happening with your Social Entrepreneurship?

I want the whole world to understand that Colombia is a country of peace and culture. I want foreigners to stop thinking of Colombia as a dark country full of drugs and war, and understand that our country is magical, full of talents and magical places.
