Startuptravels was founded in 2014 in Copenhagen by Anders, Rasmus and Henrik. Traveling to Scotland twice a month, Anders experienced the challenge of meeting local entrepreneurs first hand. Driven by the passion of making it easier to connect with local entrepreneurs the team assembled and launched in October 2014.
Our vision is to make it easier for travelers to meet local likeminded entrepreneurs around the world. Never again should any entrepreneur feel like a stranger in a new city. We are building Startuptravels because we want to make it easier for all startup folks around the world to connect.Anders Hasselstrøm

Vision is to connect the startup world
It all started back in August 2014. Anders Hasselstrøm, co-founder of Startuptravels, spend the majority of his time traveling back and forth between Copenhagen and Glasgow where his girlfriend lives. Not knowing anyone in the startup scene was a challenge and he had no idea where to find the local likeminded entrepreneurs to connect with. Reaching out to accelerators and incubators seemed like a weird approach so he decided to do something about his problem.
In October 2014 Anders, Henrik and Rasmus launched Startuptravels – a platform that allow you to meet local entrepreneurs while traveling. 6 months later thousands of entrepreneurs from 150 countries had joined the platform and thousands of people met each other, exchanged ideas and created value together.
Today we are still working hard to make it easier to connect with local likeminded entrepreneurs. You can now connect your Airbnb account to Startuptravels so you can find likeminded entrepreneurs to meet and stay with while traveling. It also gives you the opportunity to host interesting entrepreneurs coming to your city.
Join us on Startuptravels. Reach out to people in your own city or look out for travelers visiting your city. Never feel like a stranger again. Belong anywhere as an entrepreneur.
