Pretty cool story.
Pretty cool story.
Huge applause for what Travelfish has done here. Amazing to see someone not only take a stand but also try and help.
Haven’t caught this newsletter before.
There is a lot of travel stuff going on out there.
Singaporean start-up, Travelstop, raised $1.2m in seed funding. Team is led by founders of Travelmob which Expedia’s HomeAway acquired in 2015. Travelstop aims to simplify business travel.
Nice one. Again – congrats to Travelstop on their launch.
This one is a bit longer with some good interview questions:
Prashant Kirtane has launched his new startup, Travelstop, to become the “Slack of unmanaged corporate travel” for SMEs in Asia.
Super cool! Travelstop on the radio!

Big shout out to the Travelstop team on their public launch.
Pretty excited to be an investor in the travel space and to be working with the team – PK, Vijay and Altaf!
I have known these guys since my Yahoo days and amazing to see the core team still together and working on another venture.
Here we go…
Good read. Has some solid advice from a few people but one of my fav’s is Amit from RedDoorz.
Amit Saberwal is founder and CEO of RedDoorz, which has more than 500 budget properties in 16 Indonesian cities, Singapore and the Philippines. Founded in 2015, RedDoorz handles distribution, pricing, marketing, customer service and technology for properties under its brand, but it does not own them. RedDoorz has raised $20 million in funding. Before launching RedDoorz, Saberwal was chief business officer at MakeMyTrip.
Something new in the travel space for Asia!
REDDOORZ SINGAPORE AN OYO WITH SINGAPOREAN CHARACTERISTICS
Money Raised: Close to $20 million Headline Investors: Jungle Ventures, Susquehanna International Group and InnoVen Capital
Skift Take: Launched in 2015, RedDoorz is a network of budget branded lodging, with more than 500 properties primarily in Indonesia but also in Singapore and the Philippines. Yes, the company is mimicking a model that others pioneered in India. But we bet that its executives, led by co-founder and CEO Amit Saberwal, have the rare skills needed to lead their team of 180 workers in fending off looming competition from Chinese-owned budget hotels.
