Angus and Craig, like many great success stories, met at university on a ski trip in the French alps. Two years later they shared a student flat where a blackboard was added to the kitchen wall and where business ideas and interesting problems would be added daily. In was a fascinating time, during which they had some success with an Instagram account gaining over 200,000 hits online in a single 24 hours. Off the back of their small but focused Instagram following the pair started selling ski holidays online to young professionals in the final university summer.
From their ski business operations out of Angus’ parents dining room, a deeper curiosity for the travel holiday industry was incubated. Over the following 6 months (during a highly successful ski season turning over £130,000) they recognised a far greater opportunity in the tours and experience holiday space.
