This Venture Capital Society is the way …
- More simple
… for those international investors who want to invest in Travel Tech in continental Europe and Latin America.
We have identified as more attractive investment areas those contributed by startups that are capable of achieving at least one of these objectives:
- Transformation to the mobile environment, with a multi-device orientation, with mCommerce and mMarketing capabilities.
- Intelligent use of Big Data to provide the personalization of services.
- Technologies to develop business models and products based on second generation collaborative economies.
- Technologies that allow the implementation of ecommerce and mCommerce to services in destination -not lodging- excursions, tours, tickets, restaurants, and other activities.
- Integrative technologies in different direct and indirect online distribution models, at different levels in the value chain.
- ROI management technologies in eMarketing with conversion attribution and engagement metrics, with cross-platform integration.
- Technology to solve problems of energy efficiency, waste management and logistics, and everything related to the exponential growth of current performance.
- Respond to the needs of travelers who have not yet been resolved adequately by established players.
In order for any startup to be considered, it must have a digital approach, a replicable and scalable business model at the international level, and it must not depend on large investments to be successful.
