FAQ

Check out our FAQ and let us know if you have any questions in the chat bubble.
Who should apply?

To be a good fit for TTEF, you are probably:

  • An early stage startup founder or a mid-level corporate executive, committed to Travel Tech for the next 5+ years of your career.
  • Interested in starting, joining, growing or investing in Travel Tech
  • Have an operating or technical background
  • Have an entrepreneurial spirit, or eager to adopt one
  • Eager to be an active participant and contributor in a growing Travel Tech-focused community
What is the time commitment?

You are not required or expected to attend every function. We have purposefully structured the program with your busy schedules in mind, allowing for structured content, speaker meetings, and more curated small group sessions. We will also engage asynchronously on slack or discord. This structure will continue throughout the annual membership.

In other words, you attend the events and workshops that move the needle for you and work with your schedule. You can expect to spend ~2 hours per week during the 8 week immersion and engagements may vary week to week.

Can I participate from anywhere in the world?

Yes. TTEF is mainly remote and we are looking to include diverse fellows in the community.
That being said, the upcoming cohort may not fit certain time zones such as GMT+3 and above may experience difficulties.

We do have plans to include more time zones in the future.

Is there an application deadline?

Apply quickly to make sure you are considered.
Space is limited as there is a strict maximum number of fellows per cohort.

Are there scholarships available?

We work with the Travel Tech Nation Unlock Fund to support selected applicants for the fellowship.

The fund aims to help candidates who demonstrates a commitment to supporting and contributing to the Travel Tech community, such as Travel Tech Nations’ values and promoting Accessibility and/or Sustainability in the industry.

If you fit this criteria, apply to scholarship here.
