Glampitect Co-Founder Calum MacLeod with Award

Glampitect Co-Founder named Top 10 Male Entrepreneur of 2021

On March 14th 2021, Glampitect Co-Founder, Calum MacLeod, was listed as one of the Top 10 most Disruptive Male Entrepreneurs according to Yahoo! Style.

The piece came from research conducted by Imperial College, who affirmed the importance of entrepreneurship in securing economic growth. MacLeod was listed as one of the game-changers in his field due to his calculated risk-taking and innovative business decisions.

In the article, it explains that these decisions stemmed from Calum’s success with his own glamping site, North Coast 500 Pods. Setting up the business from the ground up with just himself and his business partner Ali, he realised that other potential glamping site owners were (and still are) in need of help to set up their own glamping businesses. 

This led to the birth of Glampitect, a glamping business consultancy that specialises in helping individuals start their own site, from conception to completion. 

Calum was listed as one of the Top 10 Male Entrepreneurs to look out for this year due to the rapid growth of Glampitect, even during the turbulent times caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Glampitect worked on over 200 projects in 2020 and has built a team of 15 full-time employees, which they expect to double in size this year.

The article commends Calum’s drive to succeed and suggests that Glampitect’s growing success will only prove even more beneficial for its clients.

Calum stated, “In a world of total uncertainty it’s easy to lose focus and make excuses. I ensured I did the opposite over the last year and now we’re seeing the rewards. The glamping industry has been growing at 15% year on year and this is set to continue for the next 5 years. Being the industry leaders, we are able to innovate and shape glamping for years to come. It’s an exciting place to be.”

North Coast 500 Pods is set to open its third and fourth site in 2022, and Glampitect has recently expanded internationally by setting up operations in Dubai to offer its services to the UAE.
