Taking Travel to
New Heights

Travel accounts for 10% of the global GDP, an $8 trillion industry that changes everybody’s lives, every single day. It once took months to plan a voyage across the ocean, now it can be done in a few taps. We are witnessing an unprecedented shift in the way we move, sleep, eat, buy and see.

Disrupt the Travel Industry
At Plug and Play, we launched our Travel & Hospitality accelerator back in 2016 to catalyze this change. We now work with 36 different corporate partners along the travel continuum that are looking for digital and innovative solutions that have the potential to enhance the traveler’s journey. Our corporate partners primarily include major hospitality brands, airlines, travel agencies, TMCs, airports, and other service providers.
