    About Us

    Founders Factory is unlike anywhere else. We create entirely new products from scratch and turn promising concepts into prototypes, and ultimately an MVP, validating decisions commercially along the way to attract a founding team that can spin out into a fully-fledged business.  

    Kyte is one of our latest startups developed at the Factory and now we need a CEO.

    💪 Why we're excited

    Kyte is a new initiative to provide a suite of developer-friendly API’s allowing access to inventory, booking and payment functionality from major airlines to new travel companies (essentially Stripe for travel).

    At Kyte, we want to remove the high barriers to entry that currently exist in the travel industry and enable new
    disruptive players to enter the market. We already have many large global carriers onboard that are excited to work with us to move away from the traditional methods of distribution
