Finnish Stayify secures €500k in a pre-seed round for its travel booking technology
Stayify, a Helsinki-based travel technology company, has secured €500,000 in a pre-seed funding round. The latest addition to the round consists of more than €300,000 of capital injection. The total financing includes contributions from co-founders, various financial instruments, Finnish state grants, and startup programs.
- Stayify was co-founded by Thomas Tallskog and Pekka Koponen. The startup specializes in a booking engine designed to consolidate diverse travel services, including accommodations, activities, restaurants, packages, gift cards, rentals, and SPA services in a single transaction onto its platform. The startup aims to simplify and enhance the travel booking experience that hotels, resorts, and travel operators offer.
- In addition, Stayify provides tools for tourism operators to commercialise the whole service portfolio and offer both up-sell and cross-sell between categories. Statyify also integrates to current back-end systems (such as PMS) to create a seamless sales process.
“We are thrilled to have successfully closed our pre-seed funding, as it marks a significant milestone in our journey to redefine the way hotel and travel services are sold online. With our resources and the different instruments available from the Finnish state, we are now even better positioned to deliver on our vision of simplifying and enhancing the way people book their travel experiences,”Thomas Tallskog, co-founder of Stayify, commented on the investment.
- The company will use the fresh capital to fuel its product development, expand the team, and strengthen the company’s presence in key markets.
