Travellution, the Travel Social Network, Constitutes an Advisory Board of Experts in eTourism, Digital Media and Financing(January 12, 2012)
PARIS, FRANCE -- (Marketwire) -- 01/12/12 -- Travellution, the travel social network connecting travelers, announces the constitution of an Advisory Board made up of experts in tourism, digital media and finance.
Raffy Kazandjian, the Chairman of the Board, is the former President of venture capital fund CDC Innovation.
Geoffroy De Becdelievre is the President and Founder of PlanetVeo/Prestige Voyages Group, a French-based web travel agency for customized trip packages.
Ethan Beardsley is co-founder of Edunovo and Kazago Entertainment, two companies focused on digital media. Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, he spent more than ten years working in finance and business development roles for the Walt Disney Company.
Rodolfo Baggio is Professor of Computer Sciences at Bocconi University and coordinates the ICT area of the Masters in Economics and Tourism. Prof. Baggio is an expert in eTourism and is currently researching network analysis and complexity theory in the study of tourism destinations.
"We are delighted that Raffy, Geoffroy, Ethan and Rodolfo have joined our Advisory Board. We believe their expertise and advice will significantly contribute to both the future development of Travellution and to the realization of our ambition to develop a breakthrough social media platform for travel", says Giacomo Bastianelli, CEO of Travellution.
"Travellution is not the addition of a web travel agency to another social network. It is a world browser, combining powerful research, planning, and organizational web tools to provide an unprecedented inter-social travel experience. It is a modern form of the mythical Aboriginal Songlines, a compass for remarkable paths and landmarks. Travellution is conceived by an international group of young visionaries, who are the actual children of an open, post-Berlin-wall world. The potential is only bounded by imagination," comments Raffy Kazandjian.
After closing a seed round of financing in November, Travellution has turned its attention to obtaining institutional funding in order to further develop the travel social network and its advertising platform.
