  • Battery uncovered a mobile-only, hotel-booking application that was positioned to capture the “same-day bookings” slice (15% and growing) of the $650B annual hotel-room market.
  • The trouble was, this unique travel business was buried inside a private, profitable company with no need or appetite for a venture investment.

The Battery Difference

  • The Battery team worked to spin the group out, collaborating with the management team to define a new strategy and make a compelling case to the existing board for a free-standing company that could attack a ripe market opportunity.
  • Battery led the financing effort, seeding the business and expanding the syndicate with well-regarded and well-connected investors for both the seed and series A financings.
  • On the board, Battery has worked side-by-side with the HT team to help drive¬†growth and performance.


  • HotelTonight hit profitability in April 2016.
  • As of Q3 2016, HotelTonight can be found in 1646 cities across the world.
