About Hopper

Headquartered in Montréal, Canada, Hopper is on a mission to build the world’s most customer-centric travel marketplace. Hopper aspires to help everyone discover the planet by making it cheaper and easier to travel. Through data and AI-driven pricing recommendations, Hopper takes the stress out of high prices, frequent delays, and lingering uncertainty for travelers in North America and globally. Hopper has created a full suite of fintech products to address these pain points and provide unique peace-of-mind flexible products (eg. Price freeze, Cancel for Any Reason and Leave for Any Reason).

Inovia had a decade-long relationship with CEO Frederic Lalonde before participating in Hopper’s Series E growth round. Simultaneously, our investment team developed a strong perspective and depth of knowledge in the travel space — and so we were excited to join in this round. Hopper is well-positioned to become a disruptor in the travel space thanks to its innovative product-first vision for the future, its impressive organic user acquisition engine and its success in building a powerhouse.
