How The Travel Industry Is Teaming Up For Innovation

August 16, 2017 Business News No Comments Email Email

Voyager HQ, a first-of-its-kind startup club connecting founders with investors, mentors, and corporate partners in the travel, tourism, and hospitality industry, announced today their strategic alliance with Amadeus for Startups, a dedicated program established by the North America operations of global travel technology company, Amadeus.

Through this new alliance, Amadeus will provide Voyager with access to Amadeus’ tenured team of travel experts and best-in-class technology solutions, and will also participate in industry training workshops and educational seminars co-hosted by the two organizations.

Voyager HQ, an initiative backed by the Founder of Fareportal and CheapOair, Sam S. Jain, offers startup founders both a global community of resources and a landing pad in NYC known as “The Voyager Clubhouse.” It hosts networking events, roundtable discussions, and provides a place for the brightest minds in the travel industry to work, connect, and create the future of travel.

“The Voyager Clubhouse is a welcoming environment where serious founders of all stages in their development sit right next to enterprise partners and investors. It is a tangible representation of our mission to connect the travel industry,” said Andrew Stein, Executive Director of Voyager HQ.

Since its launch two years ago, Amadeus For Startups has successfully taken an active, non-traditional approach to helping travel startups by equipping emerging travel companies primarily in the US and Canada with industry leading technology, expertise and consultative support.

“Teaming up with Voyager is such a natural fit for us,” said Kerri Zeil, Head of Amadeus for Startups. “Amadeus has been innovating with Fareportal, which is deeply tied to Voyager and its mission, for a long time, which has helped strengthen this partnership. Both of our organizations are keenly focused on assisting travel technologists and entrepreneurs, and doing everything we can to help these emerging companies succeed,” said Zeil.

According to Bharath Krishnamoorthy, the Co-Founder of BusBot and a current Voyager member, “Voyager is so much more than an office space. The community they’ve built has quickly become one of the most valuable resources at our company’s disposal. The incredibly warm intro we received from the Voyager HQ team helped us land a spot in the Amadeus for Startups Program, which in turn gave us access to resources, mentorship, and introductions to influential people and companies I’d never imagined I’d meet.”
