Berlin, 14.01.2022. Project A leads the seed funding round for personal travel assistant Origin. Based in Amsterdam, Origin is a membership travel company that creates completely individual, personalized trips. Origin uses the knowledge of human travel experts and then powers their trip curation with machine learning in one app.
Origin has raised over $5 million in funding from Project A, Cavalry Ventures and notable angels like David Rosenthal (cohost of Acquired), Brad Klingeberg (CAO of Daily Harvest and previously StitchFix), John Johnson (cofounder of Buzzfeed).
"While travel booking has been digitized at the expense of traditional travel agencies years ago, the process of booking complicated trips like a safari has remained burdensome for travelers. At the same time mobile-first millennials and GenX are becoming the driving force behind the growing premium travel market," says Mey Cezairli, Investment Manager at Project A. "We believe that by blending human touch with the latest machine learning technology, Origin has the potential to create a scalable premium travel assistant for highly personalized trips that is making travel much more special and convenient."
