Tribe Theory is creating a new category in the hospitality industry, targeted at hipsters, hackers, and hustlers.
“Your meeting begins from the moment you leave home,” writes Sally Hogshead in The Ultimate Guide to Surviving Business Travel in 2018. As an entrepreneur on a work trip, seizing every potential business opportunity that comes your way is crucial.
To accomplish such feat, you need to look beyond your scheduled meetings for the trip and check out potential start-up communities or ecosystems within the locale where you can connect and network with possible partners or suppliers.
Imagine having instant access to this community within the confines of your hotel — this is exactly the thinking that went on behind Vikram Bharati’s Tribe Theory, a Singapore-based hotel geared towards start-up entrepreneurs. While backpacking for two years to over 50 countries and staying in hostels, Bharati wanted to create that same affordable, community-driven space, but this time for business-minded travelers keen on getting things done and being on the lookout for the next big opportunity.
