BeCause recently signed partnerships for its data solution with and easyJet. Frederik Steensgaard, co-founder and CEO of BeCause, said, “Though we are just beginning our journey, the fact that we have signed some of the biggest names in travel and are more than anything preoccupied with handling non-stop demand reflects the pressing need for a solution like BeCause.”

He added that the funding will also enable the startup to address demand from other segments of the travel industry, including corporate travel and destinations.
