Seed & Pre-Series A
Heawen is the most comprehensive, unbiased lodging metasearch engine - 8m+ offers, from hotels to vacation rentals and home exchange. Co-founded by former Liligo's key managers, Heawen relies on second-to-none expertise in the travel industry and tech/SEO know-how. Still in beta version (conversion funnel already demonstrated), Heawen ambitions to reach €9m revenue by 2020 with 30m+ searches, thanks to a highly differentiated product and mass-market marketing campaigns, in France and in the US.
CozyCozy founders cofounded Liligo some years ago to deliver best-in-class service of flight search (metasearch tool). After having sold and developed Liligo in the past years, they have noticed that the fragmented supply of accommodations on the market does not give the power to the users to find the best deals in an unbiased way. They have therefore designed CozyCozy as a metasearch tool for short-term accommodation, with both as many suppliers as the mainstream platforms (Airbnb, Booking & Co) and also smaller suppliers that are often excluded from the mainstream platforms (Agriturismo, care pet platforms, etc).
The online accommodation industry is being heavily disrupted by the change in consumer behaviour, resulting from the emergence of new trends, players, and available offers. Peer-to-peer home rental, home exchange and even newer alternatives such as glamorous camping/glamping, boat renting etc. are emerging and gaining traction. The professionalization of the non-hotel world is blurring the lines. As a result of such professionalization and convergence between accommodation types, non-hotel, short-term accommodation providers are now increasingly listing their properties on multiple websites, including hotel and rental platforms. All major hotel players are trying to adapt to the paradigm shift by integrating vacation rental solutions. But so far, they have failed to develop an adequate response, as they try to defend their existing positions. None of these players will be able to provide consumers with a unified and unbiased accommodation search experience. This led the management, the former core team of Liligo, to launch CozyCozy as an independent, unbiased comparison accomodation engine. This is where we believe the future lies.
