Testimonials

The founding team of Proxce was made of up technologists, and most of us came from enterprise world. Travel Startups Incubator helped us connect to travel companies, advisors and industry influencers that helped us understand the travel industry as well as talk to right people at the right time. Matt, Mike and Nicole are always available if you need help and are very easy to approach. Madhu Madhusudhanan

Founder & CEO, Proxce

When I first thought about building a travel technology startup, I didn’t realize how complex the industry really is, even though I had worked in travel marketing for the last 7 years. Being part of Travel Startups Incubator was game changing for us. From connections with key suppliers to a thorough analysis of market opportunities, Matt and his team of mentors have been instrumental in helping Biz Airlines find our product/market fit. Bruno Santiago

Founder & CEO, Biz Airlines

When we joined TSI, we were hoping not only for investors, advisors and travel industry experts – but what we have received has been so much more. TSI has become a true partner for our business that we rely on to make introductions with strategic partners, potential customers and industry associations & organizations. TSI has been a sounding board for the challenges we have faced and provide tactical solutions in solving those issues while helping us keep an eye on the long-term growth of the company. As a result, we continue to fine tune our pitches, our pricing strategy and our go-to-market strategy. Joining TSI was one of the best decisions that we could have made to take TraknProtect to the next level. Parminder Batra

Co-Founder & CEO, TraknProtect

Travel Startups Incubator has given Adventure Bucket List access to a wide array of partnerships and clients across the travel vertical. The TSI team continually plays an active roll in the strategy, planning, fundraising and business development of ABL. Ryan Stobie

Co-Founder & CEO, Adventure Bucket List

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.

Co-Founder & CEO, FlitWays

Within one month of joining TSI, our pipeline went from a handful of enquiries to almost 40 quality enquiries from all over the world, who heard about us a result of ourselves and TSI putting out a press release about the tie-up – a great start to our relationship with TSI.
