Enjoy traveling but can't hit the road anytime soon? Why not let us surprise you with a postcard from a new destination, or old one (maybe you're an experienced traveler.) You can liven up your mailbox by filling it with surprise postcards that one of our Triprise team members will pick out for you while they are on the road. Don't worry, you won't have to wait long, our team members are always on the go!
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 platforms 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!).
