Glamping Hub is one of the premier online websites that welcomes you into the world of luxe outdoor accommodations. It will help you find places go to glamping in America, Canada and Europe. With over 27,000 likes on Facebook, we bet there are a few things you want to know about the company. Here they are in no particular order.
1. Glamping Hub is the Leading Luxury Outdoor Accommodation Booking Platform
Yes, you read that right. The company is the leading luxury outdoor accommodation booking platform in the world! Their site features the largest number of outdoor camping solutions for those seeking comfort and luxury camping experiences as part of their travels. There are over 5,000 different accommodations shown on the platform, from teepees, to pods and cubes, to yurts, huts, and tents in the most remote places on earth. The accommodations on glampinghub.com are located in more than 100 different countries.
2. One of Glamping Hub’s Investors is the Founder of Booking.com
In December 2016, Glamping Hub announced that they received another round of funding. One of these investors was the founder of Booking.com, a fellow (and possibly rival) travel booking platform. Despite this, current Glamping Hub CEO and co-founder, David Troya, was quick to point out that the investment showed how much faith other industry giants have in the company.
3. The Company is Growing Rapidly
This innovative startup was founded in 2013 with only $40,000 of capital. In September 2014, the company received their first investment seed money of $1 million from Axon Partners Group. Glamping Hub continued to grow and in December 2016 they announced that they had raised a further $2 million in seed funding.
4. There are 4 Co-Founders Running the Company
Glamping Hub has four co-founders who all have different backgrounds. The co-founders are Ruben Martinez, Talal Benjelloun, David Troya and Jacob Gelfand. David Troya is CEO, Talal Benjelloun is COO, Jacob Gelfand is a Strategy Advisor, and Ruben Martinez is a board member.
5. The Company is Headquartered in Spain
Many people get this one wrong. They mistakenly believe Glamping Hub’s headquarters is in America. It’s not. The company is headquartered in Seville Spain. Seville is a city in the southern part of Spain. Nonetheless, they acknowledge their main goal and target for now is serving North America with future plans to expand to other parts of the world. This does not mean they don’t feature places from the rest of the world on their website. A quick look reveals plenty of places to go glamping in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
This revolutionary startup continues to innovate and lead in the travel industry as the premier luxury outdoor accommodation website. With the latest round of funding tied up, CEO David Troya hopes to drive the company to further greatness by focusing on the company’s steady growth.
