Our Story

We built Lemi because we want to live in a world that’s filled with passionate small businesses run with heart.

As globalization continues to make the world smaller, we find the same big brands on every corner, no matter how far away we fly. Meanwhile, unique local businesses struggle because they don’t have the resources to compete with international names.

These authentic local businesses embody the true character of a culture, city, or town. These are places where we create our best memories. Some are just around the corner, while others are on the far side of the world.

Remember those places where you discovered food that changed your understanding of a cuisine, where you met people whose totally different ideas made sense, or spots that helped you find comfort in the unfamiliar. These are our gems, and they are treasures that need our help.

When you share these special experiences on Lemi, you help local businesses thrive despite all the challenges they face like high rents, stiff competition, and unexpected economic downturns. You make it possible for them to gain new customers who are from other countries. Small actions make a huge impact.

That’s why we built Lemi.

Why people love Lemi

Lemi is the answer I had been waiting for. I always struggled to keep all my travel notes, itineraries, memories in a single place where I could effortlessly organize, look back and share them. Lemi fixed all that.
