In life, it is not where you go, but who you travel with. It’s no secret that the travel industry has been one of the most heavily affected sectors during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In a matter of a few months, it’s quickly led to industry-wide service suspensions by various airlines in response to global lockdown orders. As a result, it’s devastated world economies and left people with cancelled plans and a travel-free year. So even when travel becomes widely possible again, you may be hesitant to book flights, go on road trips because not everybody around is as eager for travel as before. Millions of people will travel alone this year, missing on experiences, paying more and enjoying less.

TWS is a start-up that will help millions of travellers and nomads around the world to find a travel buddy or an amazing travel plan to join. If you wish, a Tinder for travellers. Our matching system brings together suitable people that share a common background, interests, travel ambitions to start an amazing trip right now. This way you can go places you would never afford or risk to go alone.

If we win the ”Make it Lean contest”, we will be able to develop the MVP by the end of spring 2021; so you can already start matching for wonderful summer trips!

The emergence of TWS is the result of completing the ”Startup School” accelerator by Dreamups.md. During the accelerator, our team of two co-founders was joined by a celebrated entrepreneur who used to be our mentor. Several individual investors and venture capital firms from Europe and the US have already shown signs of interest towards our idea. The team currently consists of three co-founders: Lavinia Volcu, Dumitru Samson & Adrian Pleșca, all from the Republic of Moldova.
