Greece: Travel experience marketplace has raised €250,000 on SeedBlink and plans to expand in Europe.

SeedBlink is a European platform for co-investing in tech start-ups and helped raise €250,000 for CaptainBook.

CaptainBook will use the investment to drive product development and accelerate expansion to Europe, specifically in Romania, Poland, Spain, and Italy.

Based in Greece, is an online platform that connects tours, activities and experience providers to hotels, Airbnb hosts, and travel agencies. It was founded in 2021 by Jerome Bajou and Luca Lattanzio, and so far has supported 280 suppliers online, offering more than 520 experiences in five countries.

CEO Bajou said: “Since we started in 2021, we have fought to empower any small-to-medium-sized travel experience business worldwide to get started and grow their business through technology to help them be more independent from large online travel agencies.

“This round will further boost our product and services, helping more small and large travel experience companies. Within this investment, we will heavily focus on their satisfaction, investing all funds in improving our product, and expanding our services to the rest of Greece, Romania, Poland, Italy and Spain.”

Andrei Dudoiu, managing partner at SeedBlink said: “When we first met the Captainbook team, we were impressed by their in-depth knowledge of tourism. We are thrilled that our investors chose to participate in their pre-seed round and support them in their mission to transform the infrastructure that underpins the sale and distribution of travel and experiences. Some of them were eager to assist in paving the way for Romanian expansion.”
