Yet another fledging New York startup has been snapped up by a bigger tech company. TechCrunch reports that Brooklyn-based travel recommendation engine Wanderfly has just been acquired by TripAdvisor, a company which (let’s face it) could probably use a heavy-duty dose of startup cool.
Wanderfly’s comparatively tiny team still works out of the Yard in Williamsburg.
According to an announcement from their brand new corporate parent:
“The Wanderfly team understands the value in social travel planning,” said Steve Kaufer, co-founder and CEO TripAdvisor. “They’re a great asset as we continue our developments in this area and I am delighted to welcome them to TripAdvisor.”
No dice on disclosure of the terms.
We can only hope for Wanderfly’s sake that no one is required to relocate to Newton, Massachusetts.
