Guy Grebla ’15SEAS and Ayuka Kawakami ’13GS founded Uwentigo, a mobile application that aims to provide unique travel inspiration.

Most travelers would love to visit places beyond typical touristic destinations. However, it is very difficult to have authentic travel experience, unless we have easy access to good recommendations from locals or travelers. Uwentigo aims to provide recommendations on hidden gems, local food, exciting cultural activities and more, from the blog contents contributed by travel experts. Traveling has been their passion; Guy and Ayuka have visited over 30 countries around the world and have been developing Uwentigo to help travelers obtain unique travel recommendations without the hassle of going through scattered information across the web.
