While taking an MBA at Indian School of Business in Hyderabad, Michael Lyngdoh and Anirudh Gupta came up with the idea of a travel startup that will share travel tips online, which was known as Tripoto nowadays. Prior to the commencement of Tripoto in September 2013, Mr. Gupta already established another startup company name Notion Ink. This makes Mr. Gupta a businessman with extensive background on internet entrepreneurship. Michael also founded another startup company prior to Tripoto and that was Space-based solar power.
The site was featured on YourStory’s blog, where Gupta said “We faced a lot of challenges in building the technology team and invested a lot of time to get good people on board”. Michael also said “We will make concentrated efforts to scale our travel community globally and make Tripoto the preferred choice for travellers when it comes to sharing their travel itineraries and stories, both on the web and mobile”. This only proves that the combination of the two geniuses also took hardship to build and organize Tripoto as it is now.
