Entrepreneurs and marketers, Aris Creates and Stephen Hnilica, calling themselves Backpack Entrepreneurs are about to embark in January 2016 on a trip spanning the globe during which they plan to connect with entrepreneurs and business owners in every city they visit. They intend to bring together a group of entrepreneurs around the world who love travel so they can share their stories and strategies with each other, as “Backpack Entrepreneurs”. They’ll share their personal stories of travel and business through a new podcast and blog and are each working on internet-based businesses to fund and forward their travels.
The concept of this global trip was seeded when the two met and found similar interests in business, marketing, travel and culture. Hnilica has an extensive background in internet marketing, including search engine optimization, digital advertising and more. Creates has experience in business strategy and mobile and web technologies, and often consults with startups on branding, marketing and app launches. The couple expects to make new connections and find new ways of looking at old problems which may lead to breakthroughs in the way they help their clientele and their own businesses.
“We really want to create conversations, build relationships and improve people’s lives by bringing entrepreneurs together, showing people what is possible with new technology and helping them collaborate with one another,” says Creates, who believes this trip could open new doors and create new opportunities for the pair. “It’s a big undertaking, but we are building a community to help people follow their passions and create positive change along the way.” The concept to share their adventures in business and travel publicly through their blog and podcast had much to do with the desire to help others–both believe strongly in mentorship, the sharing economy and facilitating world change.
As they move from one country to another, they expect to experience both business and personal challenges, culture shock and discover amazing stories which they will share in their stories on their blog, podcast and community. Hundreds of entrepreneurs and fans are already following the quest of these two “Backpack Entrepreneurs”. They hope that number will grow exponentially as they begin to travel and publicize their next moves. Other entrepreneurs and fans will be able to join the community and help them with their travels through social feedback. Sponsorship and partner opportunities are available.
About Backpack Entrepreneurs
Backpack Entrepreneurs was founded by Aris Creates and Stephen Hnilica based on the belief that anyone can live a life of freedom if they have the right attitude, tools and guidance. They believe freedom equates to what one desires for their own life balance. Their own freedom meant the opportunity to travel and share their gifts and talents worldwide. They chose to go on a global life quest living out of backpacks and creating value in other people’s lives through entrepreneurial knowledge and to share the whole experience with the world through social and new media. They strive to offer mentorship, insights and friendship while building their own global citizenship.
