TNF Ventures, SingTel Innov8 back $570,000 Flocations seed round


TNF Ventures and the corporate arm of Singaporean telecommunications company SingTel have backed a $570,000 seed round for travel website Flocations.

The business, which aims to help short-haul travellers decide where to go, also received funding from angel investor Ben Ball.

Flocations was one of 11 startups at the inaugural JFDI-SingTel Innov8 Bootcamp accelerator programme earlier this year.

The company said it planned to use the funds to improve its website with new features including a combined hotel and flight search, and expand its services geographically.

Flocations’ software gives users a visual, map-based representation of potential journeys from a chosen airport, including the cost of each one.

It currently includes information for carriers AirAsia, JetStar and Tiger Airways.

In October SingTel Innov8 led a $1m financing round for Hong Kong-based cloud media company QVIVO.

The company said it plans to use the capital to expand its infrastructure capacity. Its platform enables users to sync their entire personal media collection to the cloud to be streamed to any browser, desktop or mobile device.
