One of the biggest challenges for travel startups today is gaining access to coveted travel industry data and inventory and having the funding to pay for it. Traditionally the travel industry has closely guarded their valuable data charging thousands of dollars to access it.
Filip Filipov, director of B2B for Skyscanner says; "We are pleased to be partnering with Travel Startups Incubator to provide our API and data sets to talented travel technology startups that will help power and monetize new innovations in the travel industry."
The Travel Startups Incubator Innovation Partnership program was established to help our startups gain a competitive advantage over other startups by facilitating quicker access to data and inventory at a lower cost. The program introduces qualified startups to larger travel companies that can ultimately become long-term customers and partners. It's a win-win for both sides, says Nicole Zito, managing partner Travel Startups Incubator.
