The travel and hospitality industries comprise the world’s largest and most dynamic market, accounting for more than $10 trillion in global annual economic activity. This massive segment of the global economy incorporates a variety of companies that specialize in specific industry segments, but just five sectors—foodservice, cruise lines, lodging, gaming, and airlines—account for the majority of this activity, and represent more than $850 billion in annual revenues in the U.S. alone. Thayer Ventures is specifically focused on these sectors.
At Thayer Ventures, our strategy is to leverage the experience of the entire Thayer Ventures family to provide entrepreneurs, and the portfolio companies they build, with unequaled counsel and strategic insights to drive growth and adoption across the entire hospitality and travel industries. With each investment, we partner with other investment firms, and add value through our deep sector knowledge and relationships throughout the hospitality and travel industries.
