TourPal Attracts $1 Million in Series A Funding Round
Wow, this is the second Series A round in the travel sector (the other was trip-planner MyGola) in a week where the Series A funding amount hasn’t been dazzling. Is this a trend in the making?
Excerpt from TechCrunch
There are quite a few startups attacking the tour guide app space which, as well as packaging the traditional (paper) guidebook into a handy app form, are more generally trying to bridge the connectivity gap that tourists face when they take their phone abroad and don’t want to be burnt by roaming costs (e.g. Triposo or PocketGuide).
Today, another of these travel app startups, TourPal, has just closed a $1 million+ Series A, with investment coming from a group of private angels. It had previously raised a small seed, of circa $100,000, also from private angels.
