It’s official! We’re excited to announce the close of our Series A funding round, led by a fantastic group of investors including Advantage Capital Partners, Silver Creek Ventures, and Thayer Ventures. What has been a long labor of love is now primed and ready to grow to new heights.
When we started Traxo back in 2009, we saw an opportunity to bring some sanity to a highly fragmented and frustrating process. It used to be, you’d have a trusted travel agent to handle all the dirty details for you – and you’d just show up, get on your flight, and enjoy your trip. With the proliferation of new travel sites and mobile apps, you get the benefit of better customizing your own trip experience – but also the drawback of having to organize it all yourself.
Travel is indeed a complicated experience with lots of moving parts, but it doesn’t have to make you crazy. What we’ve been able to build over the past few years, with the support of our investors and a stellar team, is helping to take some of the chaos out of the process and make it a seamless – even enjoyable – experience again.
We’re so thrilled that the teams at Advantage, Silver Creek, and Thayer recognize the value of what we’ve been up to, and are willing to partner with us to continue to enhance our offering. Our team is working on some pretty incredible and truly innovative new products that we can’t wait to share. We’ve got a lot up our sleeve, so keep watching this space!
Of course, we couldn’t have gotten this far without the support of our friends, families, customers, and partners – so a very sincere thank you for believing in us, working with us, and providing the necessary feedback to continue to make Traxo even better.
We can’t wait to show you what’s in store! Here’s the original press release announcing our new round of funding.
