Where it all started

After graduating university, Rob decided to pay off his student loans and hit the road. He didn’t know it at the time, but in that moment his life changed forever.

Fast forward years later, after he had returned home from his travels, he was inspired to make traveling more accessible and affordable than it is today.

So, he took his idea to the world-renowned Accelerator Centre and received acceptance into the program. Shortly after, he launched Backpacker College in 2017.
