Katrin Goetzke

Co-Founder & COO

Our German Tech Queen & E-Commerce Guru. Kat is a digital visionary and started her own Digital Marketing Consultancy after years working as Director of E-Commerce in the Hotel & Travel Industry. 


She’s worked in vibrant cities like Berlin and Miami where she met many entrepreneurs with inspiring ideas. The more she immersed herself in the Startup world, the more she discovered a need for a digital support system and community for entrepreneurs. 


Passionate about the Travel & Tourism world, she is particularly interested in Travel Startups. An adventurer at heart, she lived in the Maldives for 4 years where she met Co-Founder Sam G and after a random phone call began building Finding Startups together. 

Samantha Gargour

Co-Founder & CEO

Our hybrid chic, half Lebanese / half English, Sam is also a traveller at heart. Her Business & Hospitality background led her to work in more than 6 countries, while visiting many more. She has a deep understanding of different cultures and speaks 4 languages (some better than others!).

Sam G left the Maldives (we know, crazy right?), to look for the next adventure. It took her to Cyprus, where she started her own B2B / B2C client services company while working part-time in Business Development & Marketing for a Real Estate company.

A year later and noticing an increased interest in the Startup world  she made one call to Kat G, who had also found her entrepreneurial path and Finding Startups was born.

Sam is an earthpreneur and particularly passionate about environmental & conservation Startups that have a positive impact on our world.
