WhereTo, a San Francisco, CA-based AI-based corporate travel platform, raised $8M in Series A funding.
The round was led by Emergence Capital.
Led by Ryan Wenger, CEO, WhereTo provides an AI-based travel platform that searches across dozens of channels for the best prices, and allows corporations to adjust pre-configured algorithms to meet their business objectives, generating real time, complete trip recommendations that balance cost against convenience and user preferences.
The platform allows users to input their actual meeting location or business name rather than city or airport, allowing the algorithm to factor in real time commute conditions in making the flight and hotel recommendations.
WhereTo offers its own global 24/7 travel agency available by both phone and chat. Support includes a large team of multi-lingual agents as well as partnerships with agencies and technology companies around the world to offer local pricing, invoicing, and support in 23 countries.
