Future Travel Experience and JetBlue Technology Ventures have teamed up once more to launch a Startup Competition and Showcase. This global competition is designed to help discover startups whose solutions can help improve end-to-end customer experiences and business performance for air transport industry stakeholders. During the judging process, there will be a bias towards rewarding startups whose solutions have the potential to create positive disruption within the air transport industry.
The competition is open to any startup worldwide that is Series A or earlier and incorporated within the last five years.
The grand prize is worldwide recognition at the Future Travel Experience Global 2018 conference and exhibition in Las Vegas (10-12 September 2018) and two free round-trip JetBlue flights.
Four startups will receive the opportunity to participate in a showcase at the Future Travel Experience Global conference and exhibition in Las Vegas on 10-12 September. This includes free entrance into the conference, an opportunity to pitch to attendees from the conference stage, display space in the Startup Showcase in the exhibition hall, and free JetBlue travel. Event details can be found here: www.futuretravelexperience.com/fte-global/.
Any startup that enters the contest and meets the entry requirements but is not selected as one of the top four startups will be entitled to a discounted exhibition package ($2,295/booth) or discounted delegate entry to the FTE Global event ($1,295/person).
The top four startups will be selected by a panel of esteemed judges from JetBlue Technology Ventures and Future Travel Experience. The judges will be looking for startups that have the potential to significantly improve end-to-end customer experiences and business performance for air transport industry stakeholders (such as airlines and airports). During the judging process, there will be a bias towards rewarding startups whose solutions have the potential to create positive disruption within the air transport industry.
The first place winner will be chosen by an attendees’ vote at FTE Global, and the winner will be announced at the FTE Global Awards ceremony on Tuesday 11 September.
