Trip Ventures

At Trip Ventures, we invest in innovative companies at the intersection of travel and tech.

Our portfolio companies and partners are innovators
building the new layer of tech in the travel industry.

The global travel industry is undergoing the fastest innovation cycle in history. The reset caused by the global pandemic ignited a period of digitalization and fast growth that will likely outpace the overall economy and other sectors. Our fund and corporate partners are uniquely positioned to seize the value creation opportunities in the travel industry.

The companies that will lead the travel industry going forward are startups today.

Trip Ventures is designed to create exponential value for our LPs. The synergies of the fund, venture studio and corporate partners create higher IRR and MOIC than traditional VSs.

Value Creation Trifecta

Investment Themes

These 12 tech themes are revolutionizing travel.

  • Marketplaces

    We look for the next-gen marketplaces that will bring guests, hosts and experiences together.

  • Discovery Engines

    We get excited about AI-powered engines that help people discover and decide where to go and what to do when they get there.

  • Web3

    We see a future in which blockchain technology is foundational for travel booking.

  • Metaverse

    We're so close to exploring places in the metaverse before heading there. We constantly ask, “are we there yet?”

  • Community

    We believe the next-gen platforms will connect people to places and connect places to people.

  • SaaS Solutions

    Delivering extraordinary experiences seamlessly requires SaaS solutions that bridge back-end operations with customer-facing experiences.

  • Property Tech

    Details matter. How you check-in, check-out, unlock a door… little moments add up to seamless travel. We like solutions that enable great experiences at every touchpoint.

  • Rewards & Loyalty

    Loyalty is earned over time by developing trust. We seek platforms that strengthen bonds through access, not discounts.

  • Fintech

    When you ask for the check, do you wonder why? So do we. We love innovations that optimize processes and make lives easier- for the guest and the host.

  • MarTech

    Acquiring high-value travelers is more crucial than ever. Tectonic shifts in digital advertising coincided with the reset caused by the pandemic.

  • Digital Nomads

    WFH untethered many of us from a single place. We see opportunities to expand travel from episodic to a continuous travel lifestyle.

  • Sustainability

    Until we can all travel to Mars, let's take care of Earth, its people, flora and fauna.
