In 2014, Ben and Lisa Simpson founded Rise Festival - Europe’s leading annual winter snow sports and music festival with 5000 attendees and Beyond Adventures - a series of adventure travel parties in remote locations.
Frustrated by the lack of tools to run and grow these businesses, they decided to build their own software. With a deep knowledge of selling travel and experiences, they understood first hand the challenges of this and what it takes to scale.
Ben and Lisa set out to build a platform to enable a new generation of entrepreneurs motivated by experiences, not things who are turning their hand to building businesses from their passions.
Together with their rapidly growing community of Creators their vision is to create the most exciting travel store on the planet.
Ben studied E-commerce and Web Development in Leeds and Lisa has an MA in Creative and Media Entrepreneurship from the University of Warwick.
