They created an app that boosts tourism and gastronomy

The application, which allows you to link users with entrepreneurs, won the first prize in the contest of entrepreneurs.


At the headquarters of Santa Fe Activa, municipal officials welcomed entrepreneurs and creators of Noxtur. This application allows you to link users with gastronomic entrepreneurs. Also to craft brewers and dance venues, and to provide necessary information not only to the Santafesinos, but also to tourists.

This team of entrepreneurs achieved the first place within the Tourism and Gastronomy axis of the Santa Fe Emprende 2018 contest , an initiative of the City Government that aims to consolidate and foster the entrepreneurial spirit, supporting innovative ideas and projects.

This year a new competition was held and the proposal is framed in the following areas: social innovation; sustainability ; tourism and gastronomy; and technologies Information and Communication (ICT) . The people of Noxtur, winners of the 2018 edition in their field, provided details about the advances and updates they printed to the application.


The undersecretary of Innovation and Entrepreneurs of the municipality, Hernán Franco, received and listened attentively to the details of this application. “We are looking at and reviewing a program that we started last year called Santa Fe Emprende and that seeks to promote four axes of the city, one of them is tourism and gastronomy. And now we are looking at an update and advance of one of the winners. His team came to tell how they progressed after having won and how they are working,” the municipal official explained.

“ For us,” said Franco, “it is very good to promote these ideas, through innovation, from the support of the public sector, the private sector and institutionsand to see the results of those entrepreneurs who often have an idea and do not know where to start. Santa Fe Activa has played this role for two years now and we are very happy with the results of the children ofNoxtur

Getting Started

Esteban Gil and Gabriel Vallejos are the promoters of Noxtur and gave details of how he started this proposal: “When we signed up to participate, the application had a list of bars and restaurants in the city. Santa Fe Emprende allowed us to reach a Seed Fund - anational funding line - and invest it in this new update, which will allow the user not only to see what we already show, but also to book or order delivery. Or in the case of bowling and events, request an early entry.”

It is

also worth noting that there will be a special section where all the promotions that the sponsor wishes to show will be. “It's a big step forward compared to what we thought at the beginning,” Gil added and then stressed: “We visited a lot of stores and now with the new launch we have seen them again to offer them this service.”

As for the downloads that can be done on Google Play and App Store, the drivers were optimistic and stressed that “liked” because it is about to reach 5,000 downloads
