A BRIEF HISTORY

Soon Park, iKamper’s founder and CEO, is a professional guitar player, self-taught engineer, business owner, and serial entrepreneur. He sold his snowboarding equipment shop in 2008 and decided to move from his homeland of South Korea to the US with his wife and two daughters. During their time in the US, they spent over 2 years on the road exploring, camping, and discovering.

After returning to South Korea in 2012, Soon founded iKamper. His fascination with tree houses as a child and the difficulties he experienced while camping on the road let him to develop iKamper’s first roof top tent, the Hard Top One, in 2014.

Given Korea’s smaller market size, Soon always had his eyes on the global market. Shortly after posting the first Skycamp on Facebook, it got picked up by major outlets such as Rockets Are Cool, GiGadgets, and Insider Design, quickly reaching over 100 million views.

In January 2017, Nathan Hendrix joined the iKamper team to facilitate access to the global market. Sharing Soon’s passion for travel and adventure, his goal is to grow the brand internationally.

In February 2017, iKamper’s most innovative roof top tent yet, Skycamp, launched on Kickstarter and quickly became the most successful tent project ever on crowdfunding, raising USD $2.37 million over 45 days. Throughout the rest of 2017, more than one thousand Skycamps were shipped to 46 countries around the world.

In January 2018, the revolutionary EatOut kitchen-in-a-box was successfully funded and was placed in the top 1% of campaigns on Kickstarter. Production is set for March 2018.

iKamper is a small, family-owned, company with big dreams: our goal is to make iKamper into a leading global brand, one that focuses on innovation and quality.
