This startup is shaking up the sleepy corporate travel world by making it easier than ever for companies to book and manage employee travel. Founded by Ariel Cohen and Ilan Twig, TripActions has a seamless interface and plenty of real-life customer support staff in case travel goes awry. It also recently partnered with Expensify to make it easier for employees to file their travel expenses—helping TripActions move closer to becoming a one-stop shop for corporate travel. The company incentivizes travelers to keep costs down by rewarding them with gift cards and other perks when they save their employers money by, say, booking a cheaper hotel room. After a $154 million funding round led by Andreessen Horowitz, the company expanded globally with new offices in Sydney and London.
