Project Description

  • Solay is on a mission to solve the "chair dash" problem at hotel and resort pools and beaches, and provide a system for physical distancing
  • Guests can reserve pool and beach lounge chairs in advance or in real-time using the free Solay app.  Hoteliers receive real-time reservation data with seat arrangements to allow set up for physical distancing.  
  • The potential market for Solay is world-wide in resort destinations, and is accessible to all travelers
  • Solay is about allowing guests to vacation with reassurance, knowing their hotel will be prepared to arrange their reserved seats in line with social distancing guidelines - providing peace of mind and a safe space to unwind.
  • Solay is waiving all reservation fees to support the reopening of the hospitality industry.  When reservation fees (modest and accessible to all budgets!) are reinstated, Solay will donate a portion of every chair reservation to ocean conservation and restoration nonprofit organizations. 
  • Solay has self-funded development of its iOS app, now available in the App Store.  Solay is seeking funding to develop the Android app - half of the world's mobile users are on Android devices! 
  • The Solay team consists of a female founder & CEO, female industry strategy & marketing consultant/small business, and minority software developer/small business.
  • Solay is for everyone who loves to travel and works hard to enjoy a special resort vacation, but doesn't want to wake up early to compete for pool/beach seating, or be crammed in close to other guests on the pool deck or beach.  With your help, Solay can forever solve the chair dash problem and provide a viable solution for physical distancing. 
  • Thank you for supporting a women-owned business with a disruptive, socially-responsible business model!
