Leading with Accommodation, the suite of sites offers Car Rental, Destination Guides and Vacation Packages. Flights and Ferries to follow this quarter. To this end, TravelMad Ltd, in its second round of funding, is seeking a strategic partner/investor(s) in the online travel space. The company will also consider merger or acquisition proposals.
To date TravelMad has raised $4.5 million in its first round of funding and is seeking a further $5.5 million to complete its European Delivery. Having secured, in principal, a $2.5 million investment towards its second round of funding, TravelMad requires a capital injection of $3 million to capitalize on this opportunity. In light of the current online investment market, TravelMad has positioned itself to offer significant value in return for new equity investment. The company expects to reach profitability by the first quarter of 2002.
