Lifekiy is a breakthrough to all restrictions. The solution to all things keep-ing you away from your dreams. With Lifekiy there are no excuses such as “no money, no like-minded friends” to live your dreams. The only barrier standing between you and the life you want to live is yourself. Lifekiy gives you the key to a whole new world.
Lifekiy’s community includes two different roles for its users. The Leader’s role and the Life-Buddy’s role. A leader organizes a travel experience, life-buddies join and finally the leader and his life-buddies live the travel experience together. A user can be a leader, a life-buddy or both in different travel experiences. Both leader and life-buddy relay on each other and build an actual relationship.

Why to be a Life-buddy?

’s leader, create the most amazing experience & travel for free! “
1. Sign up:
Create an account & tell us about you. The procedure would be the same even if you would not want to organize an experience, but just willing to join a life-trip.
2. Capture the Idea:
You already know how an ideal experience sounds. Tell Lifekiy’s world. Explain the experience in details.
” For example, let’s say you would love to spend 15 days in Germa-ny, during October, when many beer festivals are taking place and attend as many as possible. In addition, you would like to move around Germany these days with a motorcycle. It would be great to find 5 guys, and create a group of 6 travelers, sharing the same interests and live the experience together. “
3. Quest Offers:
You are ready to seek for the best deals and get offers from pro-viders, like hotel owners, renters, festival ticket sellers etc. Strike a great bargain, get lower prizes and better deals because of the significant amount of the package.
” For example, in a package of 6, you will get a 10% discount and the one participant enjoys free services. “
4. Set Budget & Criteria for Buddies:
You have collected the offers and you have chosen the best ones. So you already know how much the experience will cost for a group of 6 travel buddies. It’s time to decide who would make an ideal travel-buddy, set your criteria and let Lifekiy suggest your perfect matches.
5. Meet Buddies:
Meet the potential co-travelers and interact with them through Lifekiy’s platform. Find out if they are the perfect buddies to share this experience. If so, you are ready to book the experience as a group.
6. Payment procedure:
Lifekiy ensures you about the payment procedure’s safety. That’s why we have built a complex system explained below:
The system could be characterized as a contractual arrangement in which a trusted 3rd party receives and disburses money or documents for the primary transacting parties, with the disbursement dependent on conditions agreed to by the transacting parties.
In particular, let’s assume we are organizing the experience described in the example above.
When the best offers, for a 6-member group, are on table from our providers, the organizer has what he needs to set the budget. The providers accord the organizer’s attendance as a part of the deal. The organizer has to sum the prices, calculate a 3% commission for Lifekiy’s services and divide the budget, so that his 5 co-travelers pay the same amount of money.
The providers give the chance to the organizer to join the travel ex-perience for free and the final travel buddies to pay a specific amount of money. The trusted 3rd party, holds each one’s funds till the organizer has decided his 5 co-travelers and the experience is ready to take place.
When all co-travelers are found and the budget has been gathered, the 3rd party releases the funds and pays the providers.
7. Get Rewarded:
The organizer is ready to enjoy the reward for his creativity, travel for free and live his dream experience with the most amazing people.

Shaping the future of the travel industry, macro trends driving industry growth over the next decade predict an optimistic outlook for global travel over the next years, with the industry pro-jected to outstrip global GDP by some 2%, growing 5.4% per annum.
We are planning to continue Lifekiy’s web platform development, test it and finally release the product. However, there is a risk that further updates will be required after the formal testing and before the final release. In order to minimize this risk, we will work with the developers to ensure weekly feedback and make certain that updates are incorporated to the platform.
We have a marketing and promotion plan involving partnerships and working with traveling networks. In order to ensure efficient and effective promotion we will lev-erage off our networks and encourage your support in spreading the word.
