Tech and Travel is your entry point to entrepreneurial journalism from around the globe. This site is founded by me, Simone Okkels, a tech and startup journalist from Denmark.
In the summer of 2017, I decided to quit my job and pursue my dream of being a self-employed, digital nomad bound to nowhere and everywhere. I work as a freelancer for different publications in Denmark, writing mostly about tech and innovation. Tech and Travel is my free space.
I have worked as a journalist for almost a decade getting my degree in journalism from the Danish School of Media and Journalism in 2015. During the last three years, my work has taken me to large areas of the world. I have gathered a unique insight into the world of startups, and through my many travels, I meet so many inspiring people, find so many good stories, and get introduced to so much fantastic innovation, that it would be a shame not to share it with the world.
What kind of stories can I find at Tech and Travel?
Tech and Travel is not a place for the latest news. What it is though, is a place to be inspired and gather knowledge about the most significant trends within innovation and startups from my extensive network from Denmark to Silicon Valley. It is a guide for digital nomads about where to work, where to have coffee with customers and what not to miss when traveling with work.
At Tech and Travel, you’ll find portraits of startups and founders, opinion formers and inspiring talents. You’ll find tips and guides and you’ll find features taking you with me with me to the most vibrant cities and wonderful communities.
