Our Story

From Study Abroad Experiences to Campus Ideations

Duff and John met in high school and developed OffWeGo while attending St. Lawrence University and Colgate University in upstate New York, from which they graduated in 2018.

OffWeGo was incubated at the Shipley Center for Innovation at Clarkson University, and later Startups Ignite. Duff and John originally conceived OffWeGo as a fun and easy group booking platform based upon time studying abroad in London, Copenhagen and Australia.

Post-graduation, after extended research and networking with universities and travel assistance firms, the team shifted to the present model: combining the “fun” of travel with risk management, a top issue of concern for the sponsoring institutions (and students, post-crisis).

Neil Shah

Consulting CTO

Founder, CEO, Thinknimble

Hi, I’m Neil, the CEO of ThinkNimble, a development agency that works with startups and social change. Previously I founded and sold Aspire, an employee engagement software, and worked at EverFi, managing product for video games related to critical skills education. I’m a huge fan of travel — my wife and I try to leave the country once every 3 months. I wish I would have gone abroad when I was in college, so OffWeGo is my way of making that happen now!

Vaasu Taneja

Hey! I’m Vaasu, and I’m a 2019 graduate of Middlebury College, with a degree in Computer Science. After graduating, I created and developed a game in Javascript, and now I’m a software developer, in charge of technology, at OffWeGo.

Duff Archie

Co-Founder

Hey there! I’m Duff, and I graduated from St. Lawrence University in 2018 with a degree in Economics and Business in the Liberal Arts, and a minor in European Studies. I lived and studied abroad twice in college, first in London and then in Copenhagen. I have traveled over 60,000 miles while in undergrad, and my favorite place I’ve traveled is Iceland. I'm excited to launch OffWeGo, and help make safety a forethought for student travel.

John Eddins

Co-Founder

Hey! I'm John, and I graduated from Colgate University in 2018 with a degree in Economics.  I’m the co-founder and CEO of OffWeGo. Having previously studied abroad in Australia, I experienced what it was like to move to a new continent and not know anyone there and trying to plan a trip with limited knowledge and a limited group of friends.  I look forward to launching OffWeGo to make traveling abroad more safe and efficient. My favorite place I’ve traveled is Thailand.
