Below is our recent interview with Gary Kohn, Co-Founder at Luxury Travel Hackers:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Luxury Travel Hackers is the version 2.0 online travel booking experience. We create story-driven content in luxury and experiential travel, hosted by our influencers/hosts, shared to social media where users are “One Click Away” from booking the experience they just watched. We have created a travel platform that lives where the users enjoy spending their time and consuming content. By removing steps and guesswork in booking travel, it’s easy to find inspiration and book that next amazing trip directly from Instagram and other platforms.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: We are thrilled to be a part of the StartEngine experience and things are going very well as you read this. It’s really a testament to the hard work and support from those involved and of course the backers who see the vision and are excited to get involved on an ownership level. To have this kind of success early on is just incredible, and we are very thankful.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: By using StartEngine, backers are able to own a “piece of the pie” and invest into Luxury Travel Hackers with a low barrier to entry. It is a Reg CF equity investment that is done in a crowdfunding format that is familiar and easy to get involved with. Compared to other crowdfunding platforms, StartEngine is focused on equity buy-ins and can be treated as more of an investment long term than say , expecting a product or service at the end of the campaign.
Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: Over the coming months we are bringing additional influencers onboard to help support and collaborate on travel content that will help push available travel packages. We are expanding our travel packages/destinations and always expanding our content that is available online and via social media. Our team is also growing to help best serve our customer and internal needs, which is expanding an exciting rate.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Katie Warner, our co-founder used to run a boutique luxury travel agency and was the former Texas Assistant Attorney General. Besides being an amazing person, her experience is crucial to balancing our entrepreneurial energy. I think most people rightfully focus on a company service or brand, but I also think it’s important to know the story and unique personas behind the scenes. It really helps the customers connect with the brand in different ways and creates that long term loyalty and enthusiasm.
