AwayZone was created in 2017 to address three problems:
The LACK of AWARENESS and ACCESS to customers that actually understand and will support culturally-focused businesses
A consumer's ABILITY TO LOCATE and ENGAGE WITH businesses that meet THEIR culturally specific expectations
The LIMITED CULTURAL FOCUS and ALGORITHMIC BIAS in current resource matching platforms
I started AwayZone Inc. to solve a problem I faced every time I traveled and was unfamiliar with the new city I was in. I would always ask myself, "where is MY stuff?" Yelp and Google weren't cutting it so, I decided to start a platform that spoke specifically to people who were looking for THEIR culturally specific people, places and things.
