BETHESDA, Md. — Accenture Interactive, Marriott International and 1776 have partnered to launch the Travel Experience Incubator — a new program designed to discover and foster startups working on innovative technologies and solutions to improve the travel experience.

Startups are invited to apply to The Travel Experience Incubator Challenge. Selected applicants will be invited to participate in The Travel Experience Incubator — a three-month, travel-industry-focused program with opportunities for paid piloting and investment at the program’s conclusion. The incubator will kick off in September 2017 at 1776’s Crystal City Campus in Arlington, Va.

“We see The Travel Experience Incubator as a terrific opportunity to fuel promising startups focused on game-changing innovation for the lodging industry. We look forward to collaborating with these independent visionaries to reveal new business opportunities and enhanced guest experiences,” says Stephanie Linnartz, global chief Commercial officer, Marriott International.
