SBT040: From frequent flyer to co-founder, Andrea Drager is streamlining the way we travel one bag at a time
2 days ago
"If you got an idea and you are going to go for it, really go for it, because great things will happen because of that." Andrea Drager on She Built That. Andrea Drager spent 10-plus years consulting for multinational organizations before deciding to leave the corporate world and start her own company. While she is grateful for the opportunities, individuals and experiences she encountered while consulting, finding travel products that were tailored to the young, jet-setting female professional was a challenge. They were either too expensive or didn’t allow for the function and organization required for frequent flyers. “There are no really great bags that are lightweight, that are flexible, that allow you to customize the pockets so that you can organize it the way that you like to organize it, that look stylish but also that don’t break the bank.” In October 2015, Andrea along with her co-founder Michael Brown created Vesper Faering, a bespoke travel essentials company that lets consumers customize their own bags based on their lifestyle needs. My favourite design feature, hands down, is the carry-on connector; I can’t tell you how many times my carry-on bag has fallen off the top of my suitcase. In today’s interview you’ll learn: Why Andrea made the decision to leave Paris and the consulting world to start her own company The biggest personal challenge she has had to overcome with starting Vesper Faering The two ways that she has changed her lifestyle to adapt to the startup life and income Why she advises all entrepreneurs to honour their creative side and just go for it For more stories from rad women building big businesses, head on over to www.shebuiltthat.com
