My name is Landry HOLI. I am half Ivorian / half French. I mentor Travel and Transportation Start-ups mainly around product/solution fit, product/market fit, business modeling, and go-to-market strategy.
I have nearly 30 years of experience in the travel and transportation tech industry. I held various senior management roles (R&D, Product, Innovation, Corporate Strategy, Finance, Business Dev), which enabled me to get a 360-degree view of business operations and strategic aspects, which is quite handy when developing a business. In addition, I worked for Amadeus for many years, where I set up an Innovation Incubator from scratch and drove/contributed to various M & M&A projects.
Overall, I have a good sense of how travel distribution businesses work and got deep insights into the airline, OTA, Tour Operator, and Hotel ecosystems. Currently, I have a consulting firm providing strategy & finance engineering advisory services to travel & transportation actors.
I sit at various start-up boards, and I am a coach for some accelerators in the US and EU. I am also part of various investor networks in Monaco and the UK, where I provide expertise or/and invest as a business angel.
I believe that one of the next waves of major innovations and growth will come from Africa. Having African origins, I want to give back and contribute to this new bright future.
