Travefy acquires Tripeese in group travel merger
Travefy, a group travel planning service, knows that some things are done better in groups. Today the Lincoln, Nebraska-based startup says it has acquired San Francisco-based group vacation organizer Tripeese.
Tnooz profiled Travefy last autumn, when it received $320,000 in seed funding.
The merger will give Travefy access to more users. Travefy will benefit by bringing into an advisory capacity Tripeese’s co-founders, Rodrigo Boscolo and Matheus Riolfi, who are Wharton and Harvard Business School students.
The Tripeese duo released their trip planner in mid-2013 and say they learned a lot by forming partnerships with Expedia’s affiliate network and HomeAway, the vacation rental listings platform.
