Trip Ninja – Building an Optimization Startup in Travel

CEO, Trip Ninja

Date: Wednesday 9 February 2022
Time: 13:00 pm to 14:00 pm
Venue: Online Event

Trip Ninja was born out of the traveling salesman problem, but has grown into other areas of complexity within the travel sphere. Tackling complex problems in travel is what we do, and operations research is at the core of our technology. Building a tech company in the travel space has been difficult over the past few years, but with an acquisition by Webjet (a publicly traded company) Trip Ninja is able to continue and expand its plans to tackle the hardest problems in travel.
