Skift Research Take

Discover what type of travel startups attract venture capital funding, see where smart money is going, and understand some of the common mistakes that startups make as they seek funding and strive to build new businesses.

Executive summary

What works in venture capital funding these days, where has the smart money been going, and what are some of the common mistakes that startups make as they seek funding and strive to build their new businesses?

Through interviews with venture capital practitioners such as Joel Cutler of General Catalyst Partners and David Ambrose of Steadfast Venture Capital, as well as case studies of relatively mature startup SilverRail Technologies and newly acquired WeHostels (a startup that is less than three years old), this Skift Trends Report traces the developments and trends that are reshaping the entrepreneurial environment for both investors and startups.

In this report, investors weigh in on whether the wiser strategy is to attempt to construct a global consumer brand from scratch, or whether there are bigger paydays in developing the intellectual property to tackle the nuts and bolts of the B2B side of the travel industry whether it be in Big Data, business travel, or hotel or airline technology.

The report will detail best practices for startups as they go out and seek funding, and begin to build their fledgling businesses.
