Disrupting the travel industry: Why Partech is partnering with Evaneos?
By Bruno Crémel, General Partner at Partech
As the travel industry has been experiencing exciting changes and reshaping in the recent years, we, at Partech, have always been on the lookout for the most promising opportunities in the sector. In that regard, more than a year ago, we met two great visionaries, experts in their sector and inspiring entrepreneurs: Eric La Bonnardière and Yvan Wibaux, co-founders of Evaneos. From the beginning, we shared their vision of making medium-to-high-end travel experiences available to all, through a disruptive B2C marketplace connecting travelers directly to local Destination Management Companies (DMCs) to offer authentic and tailor-made multi-day tours.
Today, we are proud to announce that we will now continue building this dream together, as Partech Growth leads Evaneos’ €70m new funding round, along with George McCulloch from Level Equity and Quadrille Capital. This round, one of the highest amounts raised in French tech this year, will help Evaneos further expand its offer to even more travelers around the globe.
