We know a lot of people are excited to help Triprise take-off but we understand not everyone can't always pick up and travel whenever they want (that would be a dream come true!) One way you can help us and still get in on the surprise and travel bits too is by supporting our "crowdfunding" efforts. And let's face it, this is something we've all been waiting for - easier travel planning and more surprises in life. And don't worry, we aren't going on vacations with your crowdfunding money... our day jobs pay for that!
Mini surprise souvenir
You will receive a mini souvenir from somewhere our Triprise team members have traveled along with a postcard from one of their upcoming trips and a discount on your first Triprise!
Examples of mini-souvenirs would be a bracelet made by a local artisan.
You will received a fun souvenir from somewhere our Triprise team members have wandered off to across the globe along with a postcard from one of their upcoming trips and a discount on your first Triprise!
Examples of a surprise souvenir would be a handcrafted matching bracelet and necklace set.
Choose from four types of personalized souvenirs and a Triprise team member will pick out something just for you on an upcoming trip along with a postcard from the same trip. You'll also receive a discount on your first Triprise!
Don't worry, you won't have to wait long, our team members are always on the go!
Why not use 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!).
