Earlier this month the Live2Leave’s co-founding team was invited to pitch for a place in Hotel Jumpstart, a new travel tech start-up programme powered by Hotels.com and Expedia Affiliate Network. Out of a large pool of over 220 applicants, a panel of expert judges from EAN and Hotels.com heard 10 shortlisted candidates present their proposals. And we are delighted to announce that Live2Leave is one of the five companies that made it into the 6-month programme!
Starting in January 2018, Live2Leave will be mentored by experts from Hotels.com and EAN who will lead us through a specially designed programme covering everything from product development and machine learning to strategy, sales and marketing. Additionally, Live2Leave will also be able to acces EAN’s full suite of content-rich APIs, and incredible network of leading travel brands – and hopefully partner with many of them!
We cannot wait to begin our journey with Hotel Jumpstart and will keep you updated on our progress through the different steps of the programme. By combining EAN and hotels.com’s reach and expertise with our personalised & authentic approach to travel, we believe we can make the unknown a little more friendly. Stay tuned!
