Where we come from
Janco and Amanda, the founders of Surviveware, met while traveling the globe. Janco was a deckhand on a superyacht, and Amanda was teaching English in France. They met in the little town of Toulon when Janco's boat was in port. It was love at first sight, and the rest is history. But their journey was not without its ups and downs. Building any relationship can be tough, even more so when you find yourself on opposite sides of the world.
After thousands of miles traveled back and forth to visit each other in different countries, they decided to settle in Amanda's home state of Virginia to start their own company. They learned a lot from their adventures, especially that it pays to be prepared. There are very few people more accident prone than Janco, so if he can’t help himself when another mishap strikes, Amanda is there with the right equipment to save the day.
