In 2017, we launched Booking Booster to support startups in sustainable tourism. We have since launched the Booster Labs for early-stage ventures and the Booking Cares Fund for bold, disruptive, dream projects to further expand Booking.com's Booking Cares commitment across the various layers of the sustainable travel industry.
