tripAbrood Named Amongst Start-up Elite in the TechRound100
We are delighted to announce that tripAbrood has been named a finalist in the TechRound100, which ranks the top 100 start-ups in the UK that have been praised for their innovation and contribution to the UK's fast-growing start-up scene.
The announcement follows a week of judging from an expert panel including Mark Wright, former winner of The Apprentice and named in The Time’s Top 100 UK Entrepreneurs - and Adam Brodie of Ignition Financial who has advised on 15 successful exits and acquisitions in Europe, US and Asia.
Previous finalists of the TechRound100 have included Monzo, Beam, Revolut and PensionBee – and this year we have seen Too Good to Go, Pip and Nut, Curve and All Plants take the top spots.
TechRound is the UK’s leading voice for start-up news and opinions and the TechRound100 has always been a great place to showcase the UK’s talent and progress in the start-up and tech industry.
TechRound co-Founder Daniel Tannenbaum commented: “We are delighted by the influx of enquiries for the TechRound100. The UK is quickly becoming the start-up nation of the world and it is not hard to see why. The ideas, the passion and outside-the-box thinking is unrivalled.”
“We saw a huge growth in entries from Fintech, AI-driven companies and those focusing on sustainability and the environment. Products that are getting the most momentum are able to save time and money for their customers – and if there is an AI process to drive this, even better. Across food and fashion, people are starting to think environment-first and how not only their product can be enjoyed, but sustainable too.”
Co-founder and CEO Alexa-Maria Rathbone Barker responded "We are thrilled to be selected as TechRound100 finalists for 2020, as the only travel startup in this year's list. Never has there been a more important time to use technology in smarter ways to support families to safely travel again. tripAbrood's mission is in full swing"
Daniel Tannenbaum, co-founder of TechRound continues:"tripAbrood's concept demonstrates some real innovation in using AI with family travel to save people money and offer a more engaging user experience through the chatbots."
"There is no doubt that both holidaymakers and businesses operating in the space will benefit from using and working with tripAbrood. The startup was chosen as a TechRound100 finalist as it ticked a lot of boxes for the judges and we are excited to see the company grow from strength-to-strength."
Co-founder and CTO Ketan Anand commented "Great news for our team who have been working super hard last few months to launch our product to market. We started this company to innovate and redesign how travel gets booked in the industry and feels great to be included amongst other disruptive companies like Zoom. Users now more than ever expect to use smart products that save them money and more importantly time. Our blend of applied AI, travel data insights and conversational UX transforms how users interact with a travel agency driving us towards a future where personalisation is the norm."
