Dopplr: For Smart Social Business Travelers

The brand name really gives me a web2.0 deja vu: Dopplr. It is a social service for business travelers. Dopplr lets you share your future travel plans privately with friends and colleagues.

The service then highlights coincidence, for example, telling you that three people you know will be in Paris when you will be there too. You can use Dopplr on your personal computer and mobile phone. It links with online calendars and social networks. They’ve also got a weblog.


The service has attracted a following among business travellers around the globe. Jimmy Wales of Wikipedia recently named Dopplr his “favorite non-wiki website” in The New York Times Sunday Magazine: “You put in your travel schedule and link to your friends. It allows you to see where everyone is. I love it.”

Dopplr is built by an international team with a passion for design, technology and travel. Dopplr was founded in 2007 by Lisa Sounio, CEO, Matt Biddulph CTO, Matt Jones, Design Director and Dan Gillmor.

Dopplr is backed by a premier international group of investors including Martin Varsavsky, Joichi Ito, Reid Hoffman and Saul Klein. Marko Ahtisaari is a founding investor.

Do you use Dopplr and how do you like it?
