Michael Johansen took action after having experienced being scammed several times on a vacation in Bali, and when he came back to Denmark, he wanted to dig deeper into the world of haggling when travelling in foreign countries. He pitched the idea to Lea Kilde, friend and former colleague, who instantly supported the idea. After tons of coffee meetings, brainstorming and doodles they came up with the idea to help future travellers avoid taxi scams. The two instantly teamed up and the startup haggelstar was born. Shortly after the digital agency, Jungle Coders joined the company as an early investor to ensure the tech side of the product.
Lea is the one who makes us look good - literally. Lea has worked as a Digital Designer in several startups and different projects with great success. She is the creative heart and soul of hagglestar.
Michael is the guy with the vision and ideas. He puts the team together and makes sure everyone keeps their eyes on the ball in order to keep growing the startup.
We hope you will stay tuned and share hagglestar with your family and friends all over the world.
