TSI has found the companies in their amazing ‘rolodex’ of online travel companies who value our technology the most, and they have advocated to these companies effectively for us. In addition, they have come up with insights to improve our product for travel companies that we would not have come up with on our own.

TSI has given us practically instant access to a network of advisors, peers, partners, customers, and potential investors that we could not have built on our own. The TSI team is always available to help, and we have benefited greatly from their experience in navigating the travel industry. The VISIT FLORIDA Digital Innovation Forum also provided us with actionable feedback and valuable new connections.
