Angus Hardy (Churchill, 2013), Co-Founder and CFO at Holibob Ltd, has been included in the Forbes 30 Under 30 Retail and E-Commerce category for Europe, 2023.
Angus left school with A -levels in Maths, Geography and Economics before going to Glasgow University to study Economics and Psychology. While at university, off the back of a successful instagram account following, Angus and his flat mate started selling ski holidays online. This went better than expected and soon they had enough cash to go after a bigger opportunity in the tours and experiences space they had got to know. Holibob was created in May 2019 to make booking experiences as easy as booking a flight or a hotel.
Currently 70% of all experiences are booked offline and Holibob's mission is to change this. They have signed up clients such as Kayak, Sky Scanner and Flight Centre. Holibob aggregates 150,000 experiences in more than 200 countries and 14 languages, earning revenue on commissions and partner subscriptions. Holibob has raised $15 million and employs 65 full-time employees in 4 continents.
