    Business Model (Problem)

    Local Alike would like to be a reliable platform dedicated for local communities (community-based tourism) as well as a long term partner with them to utilise income from tourism generated in their community to further develop the community itself. We plan to expand to at least 100 communities in Thailand and neighbor countries. Our ultimate goal is to help our communities achieve self-sustainability.

    Business Model (Solution)

    We sell three products for our consumer market: (1) activities via our market place, (2) day tours, and (3) village tours via both our market place and tour company. We also work with enterprises in helping them extend their CSR and employee programs into local Thai villages. They can travel to our partner villages and work on development projects or simply get to know the locals and participate in team building activities. Local Alike makes money by taking a cut (15% to 35%) from all transactions as service fee. Five percent of our profits plus part of locals’ revenue are split into a community development fund where we support local projects such as implementing waste management processes, building playgrounds, creating museum foundations, and more.
