Crowdfunding

WHY NOT USE A NORMAL CROWDFUNDING PLATFORM LIKE KICKSTARTER?

Great question! We decided to go this route for a number of reasons. 

First and foremost, we also want to build a long term relationship with you, our Triprise community! Traditional crowdfunding platforms won't allow us to do that. These platforms also have a finite timeframe for a campaign - however, by doing it on our own, you can enjoy surprise souvenirs and postcards any time you want.

Money collected from third party crowdfunding pages is heavily taxed as prize earnings and the platform also takes their share. You're giving us your hard earned cash and we want to make sure as much of it as possible goes towards growing Triprise. This way your contribution can go further in getting our wheels off the ground.

Trip booking startups like ours face unique challenges. One being that trips have a high price point. Also, the timeline of money changing hands, booking trips and then Triprisers actually traveling doesn't line up well with crowdfunding platform timeframes. So, we got creative!

We're not guaranteed to get any of the money unless we were able to reach 100% of our goal. It's not all about the money (just kidding... it is.) While we do have a financial goal in mind, our bigger goal is to build and grow the Triprise community. 

 

WHAT IS OUR GOAL?

We want to send 250 postcards and 100 souvenirs (and the 100th person gets a souvenir upgrade!)

Triprise and travel

how does it work?

You tell us your Trip Fund (your budget for transportation and accommodations), the dates you want to travel, your city of departure, and answer a couple of questions about your destination preferences. Once we have all of that, we’ll book your surprise trip and let you know where you are going!

 

WHY THE SURPRISE?

Planning a trip, no matter how long or short, can take 10+ hours. We stress over the minute details of an itinerary instead of scheduling time to have fun. Plus, the time-tested cliche "variety is the spice of life" couldn't ring truer. By booking a Triprise, you can start your vacation with ease and maybe mark your presence on brand new territory!

 

HOW CAN I SUPPORT TRIPRISE?

If you aren’t quite ready to book a trip quite yet, you can still support us by buying a surprise souvenir or a surprise postcard! (They make great birthday and holiday gifts, too!) Also don't forget to tell your travel buddies, friends, family, coworkers and anyone you meet about Triprise!
