What made you want to become an entrepreneur?

I don't know, I think I might be crazy! haha

How did you come up with your startup idea?

I was fascinated with how tech and content where coming together into scalable business models and my love for travel. I did 2-3 years of R&D and it just became so clear there was a white space no one was paying attention to.

How did you come up with your company name? Did you have other names you considered?

We went through tons of names. We do luxury travel so that part seemed easy enough to incorporate but hackers was a name I thought was interesting and had enough various meanings that it wasn't specific. Hacking to us is about finding a new way and how do we re-invent luxury for a new generation of travelers.
