Together, we unlock otherwise impossible travel experiences

Bolt’s roots lie deep...

and we're made strong by the gathered experiences of our curious, intrepid members. 


About Bolt's Community

Bolt's members grew up and live around the world. Our community is 60% female / 40% male, spans in age from 23 to 65 years young and beyond. Members spend their working days in fields as varied as social work, corporate law, education, music, and environmental conservation (to name a few) and their leisure time playing music, downhill mountain biking, sketching, hula hooping, and chasing waves (to name a few more).

Bolt Founder Dan Pierson

Dan's passion: the creation of superlative live experiences.

His professional background is in the production of events for brands like Airbnb and the Rockefeller Foundation. He's also the creator of Subway Sets, a sold-out concert series bringing New York's best underground musicians up to rooftops above the city. Previously, Dan worked in growth marketing at technology companies Lyft, the Collaborative Fund, and Getable. 

Dan's adventures have taken him to 50+ countries, with stints living in Argentina, the Czech Republic, and Mexico, long bicycle rides across the United States and New Zealand, and an (ultimately ill-advised) 500 mile walk across the island of Cuba.
