Traveling can have a negative social and climate impact.
It creates carbon emissions, over-tourism, and poorly paid jobs.
We owe it to ourselves and future generations to make traveling sustainable and transparent.
We need to develop solutions for customers to make sustainable choices of where, when, how, and why they travel.
We need to do things differently.
Examples: AR, VR, Sustainable booking, route & travel optimization, and destination analysis
examples: Carbon Measurement, Short-haul Sustainable Transport, and Circularity & Waste Management
examples: Preservation of local resources, eco-accommodations, property management, and eco-friendly activities

Travel Impact Lab helps you to improve your business’ social, economic and environmental performance through Impact Measurement and Management (IMM).We have created an impact process and framework and use sustainability reporting frameworks and standards relevant to the Travel and Tourism industry.
We support the participating start-ups in defining the impact strategy and materiality topics, setting the targets and KPIs, and collecting data to measure, manage, report, and improve.
We combine the effective outcome-based techniques and principles of impact measurement (e.g. Theory of Change, the Five dimensions of Impact) with our knowledge, expertise, experience, global network and funding to contribute to the success and sustainable growth of the start-ups.
The program kicks off in person for 2 weeks full-time in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Then it runs part-time online for 5 months and closes 2 weeks in-person for extensive pitch training, investor networking, and demo-day.
We are looking for startups with these requirements:
No, but you need to be on-site for 4 weeks of the program in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The rest will be held online so you can work from home. The program will run in the CET time zone, so you might need to adapt your schedule.
We will introduce you to 80+ mentors from different areas of expertise, including impact, travel, and fundraising. You will have speed-dating events to meet all our mentors, and then you can select a lead mentor to work with during the program. The rest of the mentors will be available for on-demand mentorships based on your needs.
Yes, we will have dedicated investor office hours with investors from VCs, impact, and angels.
The corporate investors want to see you succeed. If it fits their business model, they are happy to set up commercial pilots with the startups to innovate themselves and help you scale during or after the program.
Yes, drop us a line, and we will join you on the journey to the moon. 😉
