TripTouch prepares for launch

TripTouch is announcing its first investment from a group of private investors, lead by a leading high-tech angel investor.

TripTouch is a new Web travel company targeting a neglected segment: independent travellers during their trip.
TripTouch’s solution is a personalized location based travel homepage. It lets travellers be in touch by accessing all the information and services they need throughout their trip. TripTouch will enable communities centered around mutual location and interests.

Gideon Greenspan, a seasoned Internet entrepreneur (Web Sudoku, Copyscape and more) has joined the TripTouch team as a chief architect.

Gil Ruda, TripTouch CEO says: ” While most travel sites focus exclusively on pre-trip planning, TripTouch is aimed squarely at the needs of independent travellers during their trip. Every year hundreds of millions of young people travel for relatively long trips without booking ahead, and the needs of this market are clearly underserved. This investment will allow us to develop the first version of our solution and start to penetrate the market”.
