In this episode of Mission Driven Entrepreneurs I talk to Kate Andrews, an avid traveller who saw a gap in the market with her co-founder brother for an easier way to book train journeys across Europe. This led to the creation of Loco2 with the mission of making it as easy to book a train in Europe as it is to book a flight.

In this session you’ll find out about: 

  • How Kate came up with the idea for the business
  • Challenges she has had to overcome
  • What she loves about being an entrepreneur and what she doesn't like quite as much! 
  • If she was going to start again, what she would do differently
  • How the site makes money
