Travel accounts for 10% of the global GDP, an $8 trillion industry that changes everybody’s lives, every single day. It once took months to plan a voyage across the ocean, now it can be done in a few taps. We are witnessing an unprecedented shift in the way we move, sleep, eat, buy, and see. At Plug and Play, we launched our Travel and Hospitality accelerator back in 2016 to catalyze this change. Across the entire value chain, there is innovation and invention to be had. We are strong believers that the travel and hospitality industry’s IT infrastructure is long overdue for disruption. We believe we can play a positive role in this disruption by bringing together the travel industry's leaders and innovators.

We source startup technology that creates the following solutions:

  • Increasing revenue
  • Lowering costs
  • Increasing operational efficiencies
  • Building brand loyalty
  • Improving safety and security
  • Creating seamless travel experiences
  • Disruptive business models
