Travel, the most photo-worthy of all pastimes, is overrun with dull, anonymous text reviews. It's time for a makeover. Triptease (http://www.triptease.com/) helps people create beautiful reviews you can browse and save when planning a trip.
About Charlie Osmond:
Charlie is the Chief Tease. He's on a mission to make the web a little more beautiful and travel planning a lot more fun.
Triptease launched in 2013 and instantly became App of the Week and Editor's Choice on the iPad. Image-heavy, the app takes travel reviews upmarket and makes browsing and booking your next vacation a joy.
Charlie started his first business, FreshMinds Research, after studying Engineering at Oxford University. The firm has consistently ranked as one of the UK's best employers and has been repeatedly named UK Market Research Agency of the Year.
Charlie's second startup was a recruitment consultancy for high-flyers. The firm has helped thousands into top jobs with prestigious employers. Charlie also co-founded one of Europe's leading social media agencies where he was responsible for award-winning campaigns such as Jimmy Choo's Foursquare chase. Whilst at the firm, he won The Sunday Times' £5M London Entrepreneur Challenge.
Charlie was named UK Young Entrepreneur of the Year by Esquire Magazine and featured in Seth Godin's most recent book, Icarus Deception. He is a member of YPO Mayfair, a Companion of CMI and a Fellow of the British American Project.
He always finds time to travel.
We would appreciate it if you would tweet the event using the hashtags #travel20, #traveltech and/or #nytech.
As always, if you know people who are interested in travel and mobile technology, please feel free to invite them to join our group!
Also please feel free to let me know about travel startups who you believe would be good candidates to present at a Travel 2.0 in the near future.
Thanks, and I hope to see you on April 10th!
