AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Austin-based travel technology startup, Shep, has been accepted into the Plug and Play Travel and Hospitality accelerator's Winter 2018 cohort.
Shep is among 18 travel tech startups selected for batch six of Plug and Play’s 12-week-long program that provides entrepreneurs with networking and collaboration opportunities, access to Plug and Play’s corporate partner network, complimentary co-working space, and access to exclusive events.
“While we’re still early in the program, the Plug and Play team has already shown the value of their experience and network by setting up meetings with decision makers at major airlines and travel management companies (TMCs) for potential partnerships, pilots, and even investment in just the first week!” said Shep CEO and co-founder, Daniel Senyard.
Founded in late 2016, Complai (DBA Shep) is an openbooking platform that helps employees stay within policy while booking business trips as easily as they’d book a vacation. And it helps businesses slash costs and track and analyze spending through a simple browser extension that shows employees what they should and shouldn't book on most consumer travel sites. This helps enterprises gain insight into the data and expense blind spot that occurs when employees choose to book travel on consumer sites like Expedia and Southwest instead of their corporate booking tools.
