Two small group travel planning startups have joined forces asĀ Travefy announcing that it has acquired Tripeese, a San Francisco-based group vacation organizer.

Tripeese accounts will be rolled into the Travefy platform, andĀ Rodrigo Boscolo and Matheus Riolfi, who co-founded Tripeese in 2013, will advise Travefy. Terms of the combination were not disclosed.
