Tastemakers raises $1M to sell Africa experiences to the world

New York-based startup Tastemakers has raised a $1 million seed-round — led by Precursor Ventures — for its business that connects Africa adventures to global consumers. Tastemakers' platform curates, prices and lists African travel and cultural experiences — from paragliding tours to wine-tasting to concerts. Community managers in Africa screen and select experiences that go up on the site.
