Accomable, which helps disabled and elderly people find adapted hotels and holiday rentals, has raised £300,000 in seed funding.
The new funding, raised by undisclosed angel investors from the tech and hospitality sectors, will allow the London-based startup to expand its offering to customers.
Founded by disabled entrepreneurs Srin Madipalli and Martyn Sibley in 2015, the startup has offices in London and Texas and is planning its expansion to Singapore.
Speaking about the raise, Madipalli CEO and co-founder, said: “This investment will enable us to accelerate the growth of Accomable, and become the world’s leading travel-booking platform, not only for people with disabilities but also for the rapidly increasing number of elderly people and people with a mobility issue, who are otherwise scant provided for here in the UK and around the world.
“Our next steps will be to address our growing customer base’s increasing and significant needs, expanding the number of properties we offer whilst also broadening our service provision to include specialist travel insurance and adapted car hire. We will continually seek technological solutions to improve our platform; making bookings quicker and easier,” he concluded.
Accomable claims to have 500 properties in 36 countries on its platform and is currently in the process of vetting an additional 1500 via a collaboration with HomeAway.
