ABOUT US

Why we started Embark

Remember how easy friendships were when we were younger? At a moment’s notice, you could fill a car for a last minute road trip to anywhere. Those frequent, spontaneous interactions developed into some of the best friendships. Years on, people have commitments and finding a group of friends to join an adventure can be hard. You could go alone, but it’s always been more fun with others.

We founded Embark for people who want to share their travel experience with others while working remotely and pursuing their passions. We live in an exciting time where many of us aren’t forced to choose between our careers and our desire to travel. Embark is about facilitating both.

This is our passion and we hope you’ll be a part of our story. Let’s embark together.

“The impulse to travel is one of the hopeful symptoms of life.”

 

-Agnes Repplier

WE FOCUS ON DOING TWO THINGS VERY WELL

We think shared experiences are the best experiences. We are dedicated to building diverse and supportive communities who inspire one another.

02
