Krugo is an app that aims to simplify group travel. It allows users to add multiple people to trip itineraries, split up payments, and parse various types of events happening in the area you’re travelling to. “You can put in your favourite teams, your favourite artists, cities you might want to visit,” says CEO Kirk Morrison. Inspired by his own forays into trying to book travel with friends, the app acts as a one-stop shop to help organize group travel. It also allows users to see all of the events happening at their destination, so they can hit the ground running once they arrive.
Krugo finds that being based in Saskatchewan has its advantages. Kirk has been successful in attracting talent in Regina “we have a great team of dedicated, young individuals”, says Kirk. And the affordable cost of living in Saskatchewan is helping, too. “We feel that we have the ability to be extremely efficient with our capital,” he adds.
