If you like to travel, you might want to know about Zamp, a social travel service that connects travelers while they are traveling – not before or after. According to co-founder Sam Zebarjadi, a billion hours are spent every year sitting around and waiting for flights, a number I do not doubt in the least. Because Zamp’s cofounders (who just happen to be brothers) are avid travelers, they decided to do something that would alleviate the tedium of waiting in airports.
While the Atlanta-based startup is in a tech community that is still growing, during our SXSW #StartupLife Celebration on March 10, Zebarjadi told us they actually have a lot of support from the local community. Check out the interview below for Zebarjadi’s tips on how to get through the tough days, why the startup life is all about networking, and how the idea of stealth mode is dying. Watch the video featuring Zamp co-founder Sam Zebarjadi.
