How I Got Here is a weekly podcast from PhocusWire and Mozio, getting the inside stories behind innovation and startups in travel and transportation.
The Headout story is a classic startup tale involving hard times in New York City and an appearance on a TV reality show. Varun Khona tells it to PhocusWire's Kevin May and David Litwak of Mozio.
Varun Khona's story about the creation of Headout is a classic startup tale.
His first startup, Trippy, lasted a mere three years before he found himself with a big idea in 2014 to get in on what was then a burgeoning tours and activities sector.
Hunkering down in New York City with a nascent business had a variety of challenges (he lived with a family relative for some time) but it was the relocation to India that allowed the company to focus and grow.
Throw in an appearance on TV reality show The Pitch and it has the makings of a story to dine out on for decades to come.
