Travel startup Parcompare receives funding from Mainport Innovation Fund

Travel startup Parcompare received funding from the Mainport Innovation Fund (MIF). The company announced this today without giving financial details.

Parcompare allows travellers to compare and book different modes of transport. The startup connects mobility solutions such as parking, taxi and public transport to busy destinations around cities, like airports, cruise terminals, event spaces and transport hubs.

“Parcompare offers us a one stop shop in a highly fragmented travel business”,  Tanja Dik of Schiphol Group said in a statement.

The Parcompare platform, founded in 2014, is now active in The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. The investment will be used to further expand and build on the solution. The company is led bij CEO Sven Snel.

MIF was founded by Schiphol, KLM, TU Delft, NS and the Port of Amsterdam and focuses on innovation in logistics, transport and innovation. MIF invests in return for a substantial minority share.

Currently, the second fund MF II worth 18 million euro is managed. Ten to fifteen startups will receive money from this fund, that was co-established with help of the so-called SEED Capital-ruling of the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
