BigBlank plans to launch its first startup by Q1 2019, thanks to unprecedented expertise and resources

Created in June 2018, BigBlank, the startup studio dedicated to tomorrow’s travel and travellers, unveils its business operations. With a core team of 12 people - travel experts and entrepreneurs - BigBlank aims at launching startups that will redefine travel as we know it.

A startup studio dedicated to the travel of tomorrow

BigBlank will reshape travel along the following lines:

  • Re-thinking / re-defining every step of the travel and associated experience

We will launch our first startup in Q1 2019 and will aim at an average of 4 to 5 startup launches per year”, Hubert Riondel, CEO at BigBlank, states.
