How I Launched A Successful Travel Startup: Blaz Jemc of TravelStarter

A Kickstarter for Local Tourist Businesses

Blaz Jemc is the COO of TravelStarter, a global crowdfunding platform for tourism businesses by helping them connect with the local community to raise funding for their projects–whether it’s a coffee shop that’s hoping to do renovations or a hostel that needs funding to have a more environmentally friendly facility.  It is never an easy task building a startup from the ground up, but through handwork and a great cofounder, he was able to run a thriving business.
