      Philippe Willi joined Outdoor Interlaken in 2007 and Bus2Alps as Co-Owner in 2009. Philippe Willi knew Valentin Binnendijk from studying at University of St. Gallen, which put the three founders in contact.

      TrekkSoft was founded in 2010 by the three co-founders in response to Outdoor Interlaken and Bus2Alps needing a way to sell their tours and activities online.

      As of May 2016, TrekkSoft has been used by tour and activity providers in 125 countries. In TrekkSoft's current management structure, Jon Fauver is CEO, Valentin Binenndijk is CTO, and Philippe Willi is COO/CFO.

      In August 2013, TrekkSoft raised $800,000 in an investment seed round.

      In January 2015, TrekkSoft raised $1.1 million in investment from Redalpine and a group of independent investors including Armin Meier (former CEO of Kuoni), and Walter Güntensperger (former CEO of Hotelplan Switzerland).

      As of January 2015, the total invested in the company is $2.8 million.

      In January 2014, TrekkSoft signed a partnership with TripAdvisor to integrate TripAdvisor content across TrekkSoft’s network of vendors.
