Kenyan Travel Tech Startup Triply.co Secures $500,000 Investment From Y Combinator

Triply.co, a pioneering Kenyan travel tech startup, has received a significant boost with a $500,000 investment from renowned accelerator Y Combinator. This partnership marks Y Combinator’s maiden foray into Africa’s travel tech sector, highlighting the immense potential of Triply.co in reshaping Kenya’s travel landscape.

Helmed by co-founders Peter Wachira and Collins Muthinja, Triply.co stands out for its innovative approach towards enhancing travel experiences for both businesses and travelers. By offering tailored solutions to various stakeholders including tour operators, transport providers, accommodation services, and experience providers, Triply.co streamlines operations and facilitates seamless online bookings.

The investment from Y Combinator serves as a testament to Triply.co’s vision and capabilities in driving meaningful change within the travel sector. With Y Combinator’s support and global network, Triply.co is well-positioned to scale its operations and offer transformative solutions not only within Kenya but across broader African markets.

“We’re excited to collaborate with Y Combinator,” said Founder and CEO Peter Wachira of Triply.co. “This investment not only reinforces our position as a leading solution provider but also enables us to address the specific needs of the Kenyan and African markets.”

Africa’s travel market represents a lucrative opportunity, yet many businesses, particularly small and medium-sized enterprises (SMBs), face challenges such as payment collection, manual operations, and limited access to financial services. Triply.co aims to bridge these gaps by providing comprehensive solutions encompassing payment processing, operational automation, and access to financial services.

Moving forward, Triply.co plans to utilize the investment to drive product development, expand its operational footprint, and forge strategic partnerships within the travel industry. By harnessing technology and data-driven insights, Triply.co is committed to empowering Kenyan businesses and travelers with the tools for seamless travel experiences, thereby reshaping the future of travel in Kenya and beyond.
