Called by Michael Arrington "one of my favorite new startups for 2010," Gogobot connects you with friends to make planning and sharing your travels fun. Based in Silicon Valley, Gogobot launched its private beta in November, 2010. The site has been covered by TechCrunch, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, AllThingsD, Trendslate, the nationally syndicated Nate Berkus Show, WGN-TV Chicago and was mentioned in Trendwatching's 11 Crucial Consumer Trends for 2011.

The site was founded by ex-MySpace exec Travis Katz and Ori Zaltzman, former chief architect for Yahoo! BOSS, and is backed by Battery Ventures, Google CEO Eric Schmidt's Innovation Endeavors, MySpace Founder Chris DeWolfe, Square GM Keith Rabois, and angel Oren Ze'ev.

The site leverages social data to make trip planning easier. Whether you are searching for Las Vegas hotel reviews, things to do in Maui, places to stay in San Francisco or the things to do in New York, Gogobot makes planning your next trip easy and fun.
