Emanuel Ponzo Dieu, CEO of Vipper, says: “We are incredibly proud to have achieved this milestone allowing us to invest more in our platform, marketing and brand recognition. Together with Netsam Participaties, we are continuing the path of becoming the premier hosting and booking platform throughout Europe. We wouldn’t be here today without the ingenuity, innovations and support of our team, shareholders and partners. They have believed in us and enabled making this deal possible to enable our next growth phase.”
Allard van Velzen, investment manager of Netsam Participaties, says: “What drew us to Vipper was the management team’s vision to disrupt the travel industry. By building an inventory system from the ground up, they’re ahead of an industry where schedules and fare pricing is still distributed via spreadsheets and email.
“Additionally, we support their vision to make it easier for people to find and book train and bus routes in Europe which have better ethical and environmental benefits.”
Vipper announced a distribution partnership with Sabre in June 2022.
