Without a garage or space to build, the belief to become the next big thing was there. In the early days of bootstrapping the idea to MVP phase, the two shared a bed for almost two years. With 1000 dollars left, Jens and Jappe left for Singapore to raise investments to fund the development of Octotrip.
Once upon a time
Octoptrip was founded by Jens and Jappe in 2013. Fascinated by travel hacking, the two teenagers started a Facebook page to collect and share the hidden gems of the travel industry. No revenue model, just genuinely trying to make the world a better place. A few months later, the first concept of Octotrip was drafted.
“If everything seems under control, you’re not going fast enough.”
Octotrip finally brings business travelers the convenience they need. We brought vision and craftsmanship together, in one simple but beautifully designed application.
What we believe in
We’re creating something for our customers, for our target market. We founded Octotrip on the pure belief that the travel industry is broken. It’s astonishing to see that the second biggest market worldwide, is years behind other sectors. Which simply meant, if nobody else was going to tackle it – we would.
“Be undeniably good. No marketing effort or social media buzzword can be a substitute for that”.
We’ve always worked with a customer-first vision, and continue to do so. We’re offering everything at the lowest possible price to make your life as a business traveler easier, because limitless travel should be shared.
We’ll always strive to keep delivering quality services in the coming years. The travel market has been behind for decades, with big corporates taking bigger cuts from trips booked, instead of providing more service. Octotrip is dedicated to turning this around and making the travel industry great again.
“Nothing works better than just improving your product.”
