With their innovative ideas, young entrepreneurs in the digital world are devising new approaches for the traditional tourism sector.

The Bavarian startup Personal GPS Solutions is currently offering 40 geocaching tours for smartphones in a number of popular holiday regions in Bavaria, from Berchtesgadener Land to the Zugspitze.

With the LET° S GEO app for smartphones, Personal GPS Solutions is serving the tourism sector with a platform for interactive, location-based gaming in connected environments.

In addition to addressing the event and incentive sector with GPS rallies and geocaching events, the company offers a wide spectrum of mapping services and geodata visualisation for sport, outdoor activities, and tourism.

Personal GPS Solutions provides its customers with tailor-made services, high-quality products, fresh ideas, and modern digital technology with plenty of enthusiasm and a personal touch.

In October 2014 the company started its incubation phase at ESA BIC Bavaria, where it is receiving support during the ongoing development of its LET° S GEO app. In addition to a financial grant, the startup is benefiting in particular from the knowledge and assistance of the business development association Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Berchtesgadener Land and from the international network of Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen, the managing company of ESA BIC Bavaria.
