Today leading digital travel platform Booking.com announced the sustainable tourism startups receiving scaling grants as part of its 2019 Booking Booster accelerator program. Now in its third year, the three-week accelerator program consists of a series of lectures, hands-on workshops and coaching sessions led entirely by Booking.com employees and experts. The program culminates in a final pitch to receive a scaling grant of up to €500k from Booking.com’s €2 million fund in order to help support the next stage of the startups’ projected growth.

The 10 teams of finalists pitched their scaling plans to a live audience and a panel of expert judges in Amsterdam, with Okra Solar and IMPULSE Travelbeing awarded this year’s highest grants of €400,000 for their proposed plans. With Okra’s innovative solar grid technology, they plan to transform the energy market and provide affordable energy access for the more than one billion people currently living off-grid. IMPULSE Travel is a regenerative tourism platform for in-destination experiences, offering more than 200 tours and activities in seven locations in Colombia.
