‘Grow fast or die slow’ is a startup mantra that a lot of fast growing software companies have lived by. Booking Holdings (formerly Priceline.com), a company of Dutch origin and world’s leading provider of online travel repeatedly bought growth in the past by purchasing famous travel technology brands. Booking.com, Kayak, Rentalcars.com, and OpenTable are its noteworthy acquisitions.
The company announced recently that it will acquire FareHarbor, a Hawaii headquartered, U.S-based local activities and experiences booking software provider for an undisclosed sum. As a part of the acquisition, FareHarbor will continue to operate as an independent company.
