The investment by ROCH Ventures in WeSki is joining a list of industry leaders that are backing the company, including Uri Levine, Founder of Waze, Avi Meir, Founder & CEO of TravelPerk, and the Founders of FlixBus. This investment by ROCH Ventures will inject funds to evolve the application and software technology and to accelerate business growth by expanding to new territories of service.
Bobby Demri, Managing Partner of ROCH Ventures stated: “Booking a ski holiday is a very complex process and skiers and snowboarders’ community must search and book between several OTA’s and providers to organize their ski package. As European investors, we are happy to invest in a sector where Europe is the leading market worldwide, and we believe that WeSki, with its proprietary cutting-edge technology, will help European skiers to have a much better holiday experience.”
Ludger Kuebel-Sorger, Managing Partner, adds: “WeSki has real and strong value proof that there is a massive demand for the solution in key European ski traveling corridors. The outlook to expand market coverage to ski traveling corridors in North America is exciting.”
WeSki has experienced significant growth in the last two years, with a 300% increase in revenue between 2021 and 2022 and a remarkable 1,000% revenue growth compared to pre-covid levels.
The company was founded by Yotam Idan, David Benzimra and Pavel Elkind, who are reinventing how travelers can book ski and snowboard vacations. WeSki brings a new and unparalleled solution to the industry by offering a service that provides complete flexibility (users decide when, where, and how much to spend), full customization (tailor any part of your ski holiday to your liking), and the lowest guaranteed price – all in a user-friendly digital format.
Yotam Idan, Co-founder & CEO of WeSki says: “WeSki has seen significant growth in the last two years and this investment will enable us to build on our success and accelerate our growth in our path to profitability. Our focus has always been on providing exceptional experiences to our skiers and snowboarders. We are thrilled to have ROCH Ventures joining us on board and grateful for the continued trust and support of Uri Levine, Avi Meir, and the rest of our investors, who share our vision for transforming the travel industry through innovative technology.”
