Group trip-planning sites Travefy and Tripeese are joining forces. Travefy


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

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

Lincoln, Nebraska-based Travefy, which debuted in beta in late 2013 and has raised $365,000 in total funding, faces an uphill battle in trying to build a brand in the very complex group-travel-planning space.
