As a travel entrepreneur, there are so many things needed to bring your vision to life. The two things that can dramatically accelerate the process are 1) building a team that shares the same vision and 2) having deep travel industry resources for advisement, networking, support and mentorship.
We found TSI to be a critical partner in fulfilling these needs. During our incubation period we were just newbies in the field, trying different things to see what worked and what didn’t. TSI was there to guide us and help us lay the right path to follow. TSI investment capital and several introduction to potential distribution partners helped FlitWays to grow by 400% within 5 months, and now we are growing into a truly global brand.
We participated in the incubation program over 1 year ago and to this day we can reach out to TSI and ask anything that can help us to make important decision on business growth.Tobi Mac
