Summer is right around the corner and along with it comes travel season. To capitalize on the influx of travelers in the coming months, Journera, a Chicago-based travel analytics startup, announced that it closed a Series B-1 funding round that reeled in $10 million in new capital. 

Journera’s platform provides real-time data to help users identify potential travelers. The company’s various products can also provide data on the dates people are thinking of traveling and to what destinations. The data is particularly helpful to marketers and travel agencies.

After the disruption of a global pandemic, the travel industry is entering a period of unprecedented innovation and growth where our new approach to data and marketing is enabled across the entirety of the travel ecosystem, Jeffrey Katz, Journera CEO, said in a statement. 

Katz, who founded Journera in 2016, is the former CEO and president of Orbitz. 

Built In last caught up with Journera when the company raised an $11.6 million Series B round in June of 2020. At that time, the company said it would use the funds to build features that would cater to travelers as they looked to travel for the first time post-Covid. 

With the latest funding round, the travel startup has raised a combined $30.6 million in funding across three rounds, according to Crunchbase.
