Vipin Goyal is the Co-Founder & CEO of SideTour.
Vipin was previously VP of Business Development at Joost, the online video company started by the founders of Skype.

Vipin holds a BA in Economics from Harvard University, and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He is an avid traveler and a Chicago sports fanatic.
In the fall of 2009, Vipin and his wife decided to leave their jobs and travel around the world.

The idea for SideTour was born out of that trip.
