Stride Selected to Join the NFX Guild Summer 2017 Class

Company joins the premier Startup Accelerator known for marketplaces and network effects businesses run by the founders of Trulia and Tickle and Israel’s ‘top angel’ investor.


Today Stride Travel announced they have been selected to join the Summer 2017 class with NFX guild.

The NFX Guild is a highly specialized firm, focusing solely on early stage startups that have network effects core to their business.  Run by industry veterans, the program teaches growth hacking, speed of innovation and is designed to help raise each company’s execution to the highest level while building defensibility into the core model.

Their elite program welcomes only the top startups to each class, where founders learn from the best, and can take advantage of exclusive opportunities for growth.  Often compared with the older, larger accelerator Y Combinator, NFX prides itself on its small class sizes and deep interactions between the partners and the entrepreneurs. The intensive 3 month program culminates in a pitch presentation for leading travel and technology influencers and investors.

NFX’s managing partners are James Currier, Pete Flint, and Gigi Levy-Weiss.

Currier co-founded Tickle in 1999, one of the first successful user generated companies.  He is a Silicon Valley leader in growth and network effects and a key mentor to many of today’s top startups.

Flint is the co-founder of Trulia.  He has many years of experience managing successful startup mergers and acquisitions as a founder.  He regularly lectures at Stanford Business School.

Levy-Weiss is the foremost technology investor in Israel.  He is a two-time CEO, board member, and super-angel, and has also been successful as startup founder.  

Startups from around the world are invited to apply and are run through a rigorous screening process by the NFX organizers.  Stride is among the 14 elite companies selected to participate in the Summer 2017 Class.

Gavin Delany, Stride’s co-founder and CEO says, “The team is excited to join such an impressive group and is eager to make the most of the wisdom that the partners have earned building and coaching many startups to enormous success.”

Since launching in 2016, Stride has grown into the largest metasearch site for tours and active vacations, featuring a comprehensive selection of nearly 15,000 trips to 130+ countries around the world.
