Locale: Tech-Enabled Hospitality

This week, we are joined by Nitesh Gandhi, founder of Locale, a company that’s dedicated to bridging the gap between home and hotels, offering thoughtfully furnished, upscale apartments for short and extended stays.

Nitesh previously worked as an asset manager of large-scale, branded hotel projects across the US. He was also a management consultant at a top-tier boutique firm with experience leading multiple engagements throughout the US and Europe. He has since launched operations for two hospitality startups.
