Opportunities we're most excited by

Predictive & Operational Efficiencies

Facing great pressure, businesses across the travel sector are seeking ways to minimise inefficiency in their technology, operations and business model. Tools that will allow them to cut costs, save time and cut steps in a process will become increasingly important in the current travel climate.

Repurpose Surplus

The ongoing upheaval caused by Covid 19 has led to an extreme surplus of supply and assets in the travel, events and hospitality industries. Empty hotel beds and venues, plane seats and space, unused event equipment and most importantly a largely redundant workforce, all reinforce the pressing need to focus on how we reimagine value from the untapped assets in this space.

Everything & Everyone Online

Historically large parts of the travel industry operated offline, advertising and selling in real life. The world of travel has now exclusively moved online. We are looking for founders who are finding ways to bring travel businesses who still operate offline into the digital world.

Seamless Travel

With the pressing need for fewer physical contact points, exacerbated by Covid, there is space to make the travel process even more seamless and efficient, improving customer experience and further reducing touch-points. From digital IDs and biometric technology, pre-check services, ticketing and real time space monitoring.
