Tripdizer raises USD 300k in seed round led by 500 Startups

STARTUP WATCH- Tripdizer has raised USD 300k in a seed round led by accelerator 500 Startups, reports Menabytes. The round also saw participation from Innoventures and angel investor Jamal El Dabal. It’s not clear if the amount includes the USD 150k the company recently received when it completed 500 Startups series A MENA Dojo program in April, MenaBytes says. Tripdizer can be described as a Cairo-based beta TripAdvisor, which allows travellers to plan and book international trips depending on budget, interests, and trip purpose. The company will use the funds to improve its product and expand its reach in the region.
