THIS WEEK’S CULTURAL START-UP: GUESTVIEWS

Next-up on our online cultural entrepreneur series, the Forum d’Avignon would like to continue:  GuestViews, a device that allows you to capture in live information coming from physical visitors. 

What is your company’s objective?

GuestViews offers an optimized device to capture in live information coming from physical visitors. More concretely, it’s an application that looks like a guestbook, thanks to which museum, event, hotel or shop visitors can express themselves as a continuation of their experience.

What challenges do you face in your development?

Currently, GuestViews focuses on two developments axes: expanding our market reach to new sectors and at an international level. Our challenges? Surrounding ourselves with a groundbreaking team and finding funds to accelerate this development.

What does it mean to be a cultural entrepreneur?

Every entrepreneur is stimulated by innovation and challenge. But cultural entrepreneurs have a specificity: they are passionate about culture more than anything. It’s exactly our case: it’s our passion for the art world that brought us to create our startup. With the desire to answer a simple question that the cultural world is facing and to solve it in the best possible way.
