Who we are

The team of PackitUp consist of the  student entrepreneur duo CEO Max and CTO Amalie. We have been developing PackitUp since 2016, constantly improving, tweaking and testing our product. Starting out with the simple idea of connecting travellers around the globe and creating an interactive app with a map as the main interface, we have come a long way, developed an elaborate social networking concept and worked relentlessly on making our vision come true. Coming from Economics and IT/Communication backgrounds, we complement each other perfectly and have never encountered a problem we could not solve as a team. Our great network of legal advisers, creative minds and plainly awesome friends has been supplying us with constant input and has helped us to move forward. We value any kind of input and have encountered endless support and are excited about the challenges to come. 

We are a team and network of deeply devoted people and we are looking for all kinds of collaborations! If you want to be part of PackitUp, tell us your opinion or just want to say Hi, don't hesitate to get in touch!

Q&A with Max

CEO @ PackitUp

What are your plans for the future?

PackitUp will become a fully functional, elaborate social network for travellers and locals. We are firing up our Branding and Marketing while at the same time taking the features of PackitUp to the next level. There is a ton of functionalities lined up to be released in the near future. Constant improvement, implementation of new features and new marketing strategies is our current main focus.

Why did you become an entrepreneur?

Because you can create something. Entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial development is what drives economic growth and the creative process behind developing and releasing new products and services into the world is as fascinating as it is challenging. I don't think any entrepreneur has ever been bored at work.

Aside from achieving commercial success, what do you see as your startup’s mission?

Connect people and enable people to travel better. This is an honest and inherent wish of our team. We want travellers, backpackers and locals to be able to discover places better and meet each other in the easiest and most interesting way possible. This comes from our own drive to travel and discover and we want all of you to be part of it!

Describe your perfect day at work.

A well prepared team has a relaxed and sparking conversation. Since we started with PackitUp we have had inspiring and forward going conversations. We work in a very relaxed and amicable environment and we like to challenge each other. Telling each other about our weekend, days at school and anything happening is as much part of our workday as coming up with new, innovative ideas for PackitUp. We value all kinds of ideas, regardless how crazy, over-the-top or ambitious they are.

What is your best advice for entrepreneurs who are just starting out?

You will always hear to never give up when you encounter issues along the way but I expect entrepreneurs to know that. What I think is just as important is be open minded. Listen to people, communicate and share your ideas. The creative process behind entrepreneurship is exceptionally exciting and you will overcome any issue if you keep innovating!
