Pinktada, an early-stage travel tech startup launched this year, has announced a successful $1,340,000 raise to support its rapid expansion.
The platform aims to enable travelers to swap or trade non-refundable hotel bookings on the Pinktada marketplace, using immersive 3D technology. An additional function they could introduce includes tokenizing room reservations, allowing hoteliers to earn recurring revenues each time a sale occurs.
The round includes investors such as Hong-Kong based Mandra Capital, Venture Capital Fund Selenean Capital, and TGV4+, which has invested $2 million to date.
