Travel & Transportation is large, resilient with high value creation potential
Travel and Transportation represented 9T$ in 2019, 10% of GDP global economy, producing 330mio jobs worldwide.
Travel & transportation is very resilient – Thanks to a balance between global to local markets, it consistently grew despite many major crises. Experts and financial markets projected a post-COVID boom.
Many top-valued unicorns are travel & transportation related. Some analysis show that if we add unicorn valuations per industry, Travel & Transportation consistently ranks amongst the top 3.
Travel & transportation industry is in a unprecedent stage where transformation is much needed to unleash further impactful value creation.
This is a unique opportunity for innovative ventures, but as well for financial investors and leading travel traditional players.
BUT, Travel & Transportation growth potential is partly caped by a lack of expertise and collaboration between financial investors, traditional travel players and innovative ventures.
Through 27 years in the travel Industry, Landry HOLI, founder of Fairval, worked on various large transformation and innovation projects with start-ups. Through these initiatives, he faced the same problem over and over:
- Lack of strategic and financial expertise from start-ups,
- Limited in-depth understanding of travel & transportation from investors,
- Collaboration is inefficient between start-ups, financial investors and traditional travel players.
Not addressing these problems, limits value creation impact. It is for these reasons that Fairval was initially created.
