TripAdvisor is an anchor company in the Boston tech scene. The consumer travel giant was founded in 2000 by Stephen Kaufer, Langley Steinert, Nick Shanny, and Thomas Palka in 2000 and went public in 2011. The company was one of the first websites to utilize user-generated content for its reviews.
With the company's deep roots in the Boston tech sector, several of their alumni have gone on to start other companies or have become part of the leadership team at other Boston tech companies. Below is a slideshow which highlights successful 20+ alumni of TripAdvisor.
For this slideshow, we used the following criteria:
- Must be based in the Boston area
- Tenure at TripAdvisor for at least two years
- Currently a founder, board member, or executive (VP or higher)
- We didn't include anyone from the FlipKey acquisition, as that group could be its own spider web.
