As a guided outdoor adventure company, we at iTREKKERS spend most of our time focusing on the outdoors, but sometimes we still head inside, sip some coffee, and talk shop. In this case, it was a pleasure!
iTREKKERS founder and CEO Tom Mulliez discusses the company with local entrepreneurs at 1 Million Cups, St. Petersburg, in February 2017. An initial presentation is followed by a robust Question and Answer Segment.
Hear more about iTREKKERS and how it works from the CEO’s point of view:
What is 1 Million Cups?
1 Million Cups is a brainchild of the non-profit Kauffman Foundation. The goal of 1 Million Cups: to bring together local business leaders and community members with the startup founders and entrepreneurs who live, work, and play in the same city or region.
More often than not, an investor or two is in the audience, listening for a great idea or solid business plan. Investment, however, is secondary as a goal for 1 Million Cups. The real goal: to help founders, investors, government, and citizens come together to help develop and improve a city’s entrepreneurial footprint.
What is iTREKKERS?
Through guided private fishing charters, stand up paddle and kayak fishing or tours, specialty trips, hiking, and camping, iTREKKERS aims to put Tampa Bay – and Florida – on the outdoor industry map. By luring vacationers outside to try fun new activities or enjoy an old favorite, iTREKKERS offers visitors and locals alike the chance to explore the back bays, mangroves, forests and rivers that make up much of the state of Florida.
