Company description


Triptrotting is a global community where travelers can find like-minded locals (aka “Triptrotters”), based on similar interests, profession and personalities. Travelers can also ask questions and find the most relevant answers about their travel destination, provided by the locals. 
Connect people with similar interests from different corners of the world, who otherwise would have never met each other. "Connect online, create friendships offline."


Triptrotting re-launched its site in May, 2011 with only 500 members, and by June 2011 already has thousands of users in 500+ cities across 100+ countries. 

In January 2011, Triptrotting received seed funding from Bill Gross' Idealab, leading creator and operator of technology companies.

In May 2010, Triptrotting placed 2nd at the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business Seed Competition on the MBA level
