«Changing your perspective on the most isolated destinations.
Discover the real beyond the mirage»

Jonas Bang Andersen

This is Jonas Bang Andersen | Founder of Above borders

On this fifth episode, I had an empowering and adventurous talk with Jonas Bang Andersen, founder of Above borders, a travel company on a mission to explore the real world.

Above borders is a startup that has a clear and vivid mission based upon people and how to trigger and challenge mindsets. 

Jonas portrays an inspiring and purposeful business leadership, from a background in finance to a journey of entrepreneurship into the travel industry but with a twist: isolated destinations.

He shared beyond his passion and openness, how determination, resilience, curiosity can be a manifesto to a life path. He opens the eyes of travellers and entices us all to see and experience travel on a broader level, clear off prejudiced ‘’eyes’’.

Dive into the talk and discover an entrepreneur and vision to watch in 2020 and beyond.

You can contact him and exchange on his entrepreneurial journey!

The recording of the projects started from October 2019 to December 2019. During those months I allowed the city and connections to bring to me these brilliant minds.
Before each conversation, I created a little introduction guide with themes we could talk about during our talk and expand them.

From the beginning, I wanted the guests to share objects or quotes that motivated  and kept them grounded. I was at each time surprised by what they brought and how it enlightened the talks.

I didn't really prepare for each conversation other than the guide I shared with them. The main wish was to follow the flow and be in the moment, allowing the intuitive questions to come and find resonance.
