Providing startups and scaleups with FREE access to the most innovative corporates in the air transport and travel sector
It’s no secret that startups and scaleups can find it difficult to access and engage with the corporate organisations that could benefit from the products and services they offer. Although there is generally a will among corporates (such as airlines and airports) to engage with startups and scaleups, the demands of the day job often get in the way.
The Future Travel Experience (FTE) Innovation & Startup Hub makes it as easy as possible for startups and scaleups to ensure that they are on the radar of the corporates whose businesses they can help to transform.
More than 180 startups and scaleups are already listed on our online startup database and in excess of 40 of them pitched to our Corporate Partners at FTE Startup Hub Live events around the world in 2018. Join for free today to be part of the Hub in 2019.Create your FREE startup account
Simon Dempsey, CEO & Founder, LikeWhere
Transitioning an innovative solution into a sustainable company is a challenging remit for any startup. Perhaps the greatest of these challenges is engaging large corporates. The approach FTE is taking to streamline this process for corporates and startups alike will be fundamental to creating much-enhanced levels of engagement, which is sure to yield great results.
Julien Sivan, CEO, SKYdeals
There has been time to talk with the people who are interesting to us. I’ve had good conversations with airlines and startups. We’ll be back!
Martin O’Regan, CEO, Inflightflix
The Startup Hub Live event was a fantastic opportunity to pitch to multiple airlines and key decision-makers in the industry. Afterwards, an opportunity potentially worth multi-million euros was presented to me, which is amazing. It’s been a great opportunity. Everything was 10 out of 10.
Brian Whelan, CEO, Travacoin
The Startup Hub Day was fantastic and giving people like us – the startups – a platform like this is like oxygen for us.
Jere Tala, Head of Travel Retail, QuietOn
It has been a fantastic event. Very well organised and size-wise it is excellent. This is the first one completely travel-related. It is a stand-out from other events because each and every company and every stakeholder is somehow related to travel.
Ortez Gude, CEO & Co-founder, Citiri
It’s been valuable and I thought the format was great. There were some great Corporate Partners and people we wanted to talk to and meet with.
Completely free – no annual cost to startups

“Travel” is a very broad term, but the focus at FTE is very much on the products and services created for airlines, airports and their closely held partners. We aim to build the largest air transport focused startup repository in the world and we want it to be laser-focused on the following areas: Inspiration & Booking, Airport, Inflight, Pre- & Post-Travel. If your startup or scaleup has something to offer in any of these areas, please get involved.
The FTE Startup Hub is open to any startup or scaleup worldwide that is Series B or earlier and with sales of less than €2 million.
We look forward to working with you!
