Philipp Brinkmann, co- founder and CEO of Tripsta, attended the Munich Business School (MBS) and spent one semester at Regents Business School in London and one at European Business School in Madrid. He has worked in corporate finance at Capeo AG. The idea for Tripsta emerged in 2004, when Philipp researched the feasibility of selling ferry tickets online to international travelers and discovered that there was no established OTA in Greece. With online travel already a mature and successful business model in most Western European countries, Philipp and his co-founder Kristof Keim saw an opportunity to capture the Greek market.
