Goodwings, a Danish startup, is described as a climate-focussed sustainable SaaS travel management platform. A recent successful late seed investment round has brought in $1.5 million for the company. Participants in the funding round included Global Cleantech Capital (GCC), recognised for its investments in Klimato and Tabby, as well as JTB USA, a prominent global travel agency and offshoot of JTB Corp. Several returning investors also contributed.
Goodwings has introduced an innovative solution that revolutionises how businesses evaluate and reduce their travel-related environmental impact, aligning with both current and future demands.
The newly acquired funds will be channelled into expanding Goodwings’ global presence, incorporating new product features tailored for businesses obligated to report emissions and achieve net-zero objectives. The partnership with JTB USA holds the potential for substantial growth in clientele and Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR).
Geert dae Boo, VP of Global Business Travel at JTB USA commented, “There’s a seismic shift taking place across the travel sector. With sustainability now dominating the corporate agenda, it will be businesses that lead from the front that will reap the benefits.”
Additionally, Paul Kloppenborg, CEO at Global Cleantech Capital stated, “Goodwings is strategically positioned at the intersection of this trend and we feel confident they can dominate this space for years to come”.
Christian Møller-Holst, founder and CEO of Goodwings, expressed his optimism saying, “The market is primed for solutions like ours and we’re excited to see what the collaboration between our two businesses can deliver.”
