Booking.com's 3-week sustainable tourism accelerator programme
Tourism as a Force for Good.
In 2017, we launched the Booking Booster Programme, which brought 10 top scale-ups to Amsterdam in order to support the development of their businesses and growth plans over the course of three intensive weeks. We believe that by supporting startups and scale-ups at different stages in their journeys and by offering the right kind of guidance and assistance when they need it most, we can work together toward a more sustainable future for the global tourism industry.
In 2018, we hosted our second Booking Booster Programme. 10 more sustainable tourism scale-ups joined us in Amsterdam to put their business plans and impact to the test. To learn more about who participated and the outcome, visit our blog.
At the moment, we don't have any applications open. You can sign up for our mailing list to be notified of any future openings via our contact page.
Who are we looking for?
Tourism has delivered enormous benefits to communities all over the world. It has helped bring millions out of poverty and contributed to increased understanding between diverse people and cultures in every corner of the globe. Because we want to ensure it continues to do so in the future, we're looking for ventures that are supporting local communities in the tourism industry, businesses that help relieve pressure on overcrowded tourist areas and startups that positively impact the environment.
A three-week accelerator programme for scale-ups dedicated to sustainable tourism, culminating in an opportunity to pitch for grants of up to €500,000.
