Triptrotting picked up $1 million in funding from Google Ventures and other angels, capping off a pretty big week for women-led, social-travel-oriented startups.
Also this week, Tripbod, which like Triptrotting connects travelers and locals, picked up what is believed to be an upper-six-figure sum from an unidentified but apparently well-heeled angelic type.
Founded in 2010 by Aigerim Shorman and Shana Zheng, Triptrotting pairs travelers and local hosts through compatibility-matching algorithms developed by Galen Buckwalter, the former chief scientist at dating site eHarmony.
