In this episode, Jim is talking to Bart-Jan Leyts, a 23-year-old Young Entrepreneur who has built a company called Loreca in the hotel and hospitality industry. They discuss how Bart-Jan has managed to get 296 hotels to sign up for his AI-based hospitality revenue enhancement platform, as well as how he overcame the challenges of being a Young Entrepreneur and introducing new tech to a traditional industry.
They also talk about how Loreca works, and how the algorithm manages to “game the system” on sites like Booking.com and Expedia. They discuss how Bart-Jan has been proving himself and building the Loreca brand through speaking opportunities, trade associations and word-of-mouth marketing. Bart-Jan also shares advice on how to #getnoticed as a Young Entrepreneur, encouraging listeners to take one day in two or three weeks to be bold and send emails to local press, start endorsements, and reach out on social media.

Am I adding value to you?
If so - I'd like to ask you to support the show.
In return, I will continue to bring massive value with two weekly shows, up to 3 hours per month of brilliant conversations and insights.
Monthly subscriptions start at $3 per month. At $1 per hour, that's much less than the minimum wage, but we'll take what we can at this stage of the business.
Of course, this is still free, but as an entrepreneur, the actual test of anything is if people are willing to pay for it.
