Ahead of our upcoming RISE 2016 sale, let’s take a look at some of the standout startups from this year’s event.

Each of these four startups joined our START programme at RISE this July. It’s where we showcase who we think are the highest-potential startups across the globe.

These guys fitted right in:

Wanderlust – The Travel Tribe

Wanderlust reckon that travel should be shared.

This app is for the people who “start conversations on airplanes, countdown to festivals, and always have time to help out a new friend,” they say.


According to Co-founder and CEO Steven Kim, Qraved bring “content, community, and commerce together“.

oajs No surprise we’re fans of Peatix – they’re helping create great event experiences for both attendees and organisers.
