HOW CAN INTERNET STARTUP MAKE CLIMBING SAFER?

At the dawn of the 21th century the stocks of America’s most Innovative companies experienced a dramatic decline.  The dot.com bubble, previously fueled with the investments, was now bursting which caused some of the largest companies to shut down their startup projects.


The investors seemed to be losing faith in the internet-based business until completely new projects were introduced on the market. These projects inherited the social networking architecture and were designed with a purpose of offering access to cheaper goods and service providers.  

This business model allows various individuals interact to buy and sell services or goods more cheaply than in traditional business.

Nowadays we can barely imagine our lives without online platforms which allow to book taxi cheaper, borrow money with lower interest rate, and even learn at home. The list of the services provided through this model of business keeps growing every minute.

How can this business model improve the guided climbing industry? Sergey Kofanov, the mountainplanet.com founder, renowned mountain guide and two times Mount Everest summiter explains “My dream was to make mountains safer and accessible to people. I have witnessed tragic climbing accidents and disasters. And the more I think of this the more convinced I get that in many cases climbers and guides were not provided with the updated and secured information on the routes’ condition. And this is how I came up with an idea to create a geo-informational social network for global Alpine Community.  The project would combine features of social network and provide climbers with verified information for safe climbing. The key aim for creating mountainplanet.com was to help mountain guides and clients locate each other better and contact directly”.
