The UK-based hospitality tech start-up Hotel Manager has bagged an additional £2.2 million having previously secured a £1 million in December 2022, bringing a total Seed round to £3.2 million.
The round was led by Fuel Ventures who added to its previous investment alongside existing investors Pitchdrive VC, CORE Angels, Boost Fund, StartupIst Ventures and angel investors across the hospitality and technology industries.
Funds will enable Hotel Manager ‘to fuel aggressive growth’, ‘hire key team members’ and build upon its product.
Founded in 2020, Hotel Manager gives hotels a digital solution which eliminates the need for an IT department. Hoteliers are able to launch their own guest-facing interfaces to enable a new communication channel, promoting in-house services as well as attracting diversified revenue streams through commission-based experience booking income. On the operational side, Hotel Manager provides staff with a purpose-built solution - helping move away from Excel spreadsheets and WhatsApp.
“With this round of funding, we have the fuel to realise our ambitions to enable innovation in hospitality and create memorable experiences for guests and hotel staff. We have exciting plans to accelerate our growth, deepening our enterprise client base, expanding our award-winning product and continuing to serve the new breed of hotel owners and operators globally,” says Ajwad Hashim, CEO, Hotel Manager.
