Dreamit Alum Headout Raises $10 Million in Series A
Headout, a mobile app that lets consumers book last-minute activities in 15 major cities, has raised $10 million in Series A financing. Nexus Venture Partners and Version One Ventures led the investment in the New York City-based startup, which has raised $12 million to date.
Headout, which was founded at the start of 2015, said that the majority of its reservations for in-destination activities have been for the same day. Until now, it has sold other tour operators’ products, but this year it has been testing offers of experiences under its brand name.
Headout sells its content in many ways, such as via the Google Trips mobile app and through partnerships with demand aggregators like Wall Street Journal and Handy, the in-room hotel services app for hotels from Tink Labs. The 50-employee startup has offices in New York City, London, Dubai, Bangalore, and Berlin.
Varun Khona, co-founder and CEO, Headout, said that the funds will be used for launching services in 100 cities by 2019, expanding the team worldwide and investing in technology to further enable seamless last-minute mobile reservations for local experiences.
