16: Gabriel Harper on Building a Startup on the Beach in Thailand

Gabriel is a talented young man from the UK that I met at Beachub in Koh Phangan. There he works with his brother/co-founder on an early-stage startup called Moju, a platform for companies to find Instagram influencers.

I met Gabriel early on during my visit to Koh Phangan but it wasn’t until I overheard a meeting with a prospective client that I decided to ask him on the show.

    1. Hey Saddle. My sister’s boyfriend is currently looking after my car and I don’t have any other ‘large items’. The rest of my possessions are stored at my mother’s house.
