In this episode we are joined by Jared Campion. Jared is the founder of DreamDrive, a company based in Tokyo who are leading the way for people to experience Japan by camper van. Join Jared and I on this road trip as we explore how Jared's childhood passion of camping with his family evolved into a business which is now part of a movement that is challenging not only how we think about travel but also is challenging the current model of living in big cities. In his journey as a foreign founder, Jared shares how he's continuously testing and validating his product and business model to ensure he's providing the best possible experience to his customers, the importance of gathering the right team and developing the ability to recognize and execute on opportunity.
