CEO and Founder, Prontopia
Shannon Kenny launched Prontopia in April of 2018 as a solution to the increasing gap in availability of in-trip help while traveling. Shannon had divided her time between California and Italy throughout her professional career as a historian and social entrepreneur since 1997 and founder of the Italy family travel website Italiakids.com, the Arte al Sole Italy educational travel programs, and Elaia Travel, a boutique trip planning concierge. Shannon frequently had the need for a service like Prontopia as a mom traveling alone with 2 young children, and also saw the need among her friends, her aging parents, and clients in city centers around the world. She felt that connecting people in the city for just a little bit of help in those unanticipated moments would make life easier on many levels, and also connect people in the city in meaningful ways.
