TripMate was founded by three computer systems engineering students and travel buddies - Sami Ullah of Mansehra, Haroon Khan of Mohmand Agency and Atif Rehman of Tank - from the University of Engineering and Technology, Peshawar. “We went to Gilgit in 2017 and were approached by a family there asking us to see the main places and eat at the restaurants. That’s where we got the idea from,” the CEO recalls.
