Representing a range of business ideas in the digital travel space, they comprise start-ups such as ComeSingapore, Forget Boundaries, Yoplr, Tourz and Eco Travel.

Each company will have the opportunity to be mentored by a panel of experts and advisors before pitching for the right to present their ideas at the Grand Final during the WIT Conference the following day on October 19.

The WITovation Entrepreneur Bootcamp, aimed at driving innovation and inspiring entrepreneurs in the digital travel space, will be held at the Singapore Tourism Board Auditorium, Level 2 of the STB’s head office located at Orchard Spring Lane.

All WIT delegates are entitled to attend the Bootcamp.

Non-WIT delegates pay an entrance fee of S$180 to attend the day’s programme, which features a keynote talk by archangel investor and serial entrepreneur Morten Lund, one of the first investors in Skype as well as 50 other start-ups including flight data startup Everbead.

Other sessions will discuss entrepreneurship from successful travel startups across the region and innovation to come within the online travel industry.

Following the Bootcamp, Tnooz will hold #tcamp6 at a nearby venue between 6 and 8pm, free entry for all Bootcampers and WIT delegates.
