ADVENTURE JUNKY ENTERPRISES

Adventure Junky is a travel tech start-up in its infancy, but the team behind it are seasoned professionals from the fields of travel, marketing, branding and technology. Collectively, Management, the Board, the Advisory Team and Shareholders of Adventure Junky have shaped a product that responds to the global consumer trend toward more authentic travel, the dominance of mobile as a planning and booking tool, and gamification as mean to engage audiences. With it we aim to change the way the world engages with travel and help protect the people and places on which the industry relies. The Adventure Junky App is currently available for iPad, and shortly for iPhone and Android. Send us an email if you’d like to learn more about the business, or join our team. Below are just few of our key people and the ones you are most likely to meet:
