Four men: Kardos László, Gadácsi Péter, Bíró Ákos and Dimitar Dinchev founded Trekhunt. To be more precise, the Bulgarian man, Dimitar joined them in Japan somewhat later, he was working for SoundCloud before. László Kardos, former member of Skyscanner and Prezi, and two of his former university friends: the mountain climber and tour leader Péter Gadácsi, as well as Ákos Bíró who was working in the financial planning department of multinational companies.
Last summer they set up the company with 7 million equity capital, in the autumn they got some more help from an “Angel” – they name it, and now they negotiate with several investors, and venture capital founds about a capital increase in 2019 which will price 1 million euros.
Our long-term goal is building every tour in the world into our search engine so that anyone who desires mountain climbing, biking, rafting, surfing, skiing or even paragliding don’t have to waste hours of their time on looking for the guided program opportunities while comparing them to others. –said László Kardos
