Trover’s mission is to expose the beauty and wonder in the world, to connect travelers through beautiful photos and shared stories. Trover was co-founded by former CEO of Expedia Rich Barton and Jason Karas, who set out to create something part gallery and part guidebook; a location-tagging and social-photo sharing experience that could connect people and fuel passion for exploration. Today, Trover is the little content engine that could. This boutique social network. The team raised a $2.5MM round from Concur, General Catalyst, Benchmark and Barton in 2013, and was purchased by Expedia in 2016.
“Tamara brought so much energy and new thinking to our product team. We built personas together, and they’ve become a rallying point for our company, adding a ton of focus to our product decisions.” – Jason Karas, Trover CEO
