About the Speaker
Born in Bangalore, India, Shaam has an MBA from Harvard University and worked in the auto industry and financial services before moving to Berlin in 2012.
As a passionate traveler, it was while backpacking around Europe in 2010 after completing his studies that Shaam first became aware of the need to improve the transport booking system across the continent. Although the trip was a fantastic experience, Shaam found he was spending too much time planning the trips rather than enjoying them.
There was no centralised, clear platform, to find, compare and book train, bus and flight options. The travel operators were not all presented in one place, and each country had very different ways of presenting data and managing user experience, making it a very challenging process in desperate need of change. The inspiration behind GoEuro was born and Shaam packed up his life in New York, moved to Berlin and the GoEuro journey began.
