Big data to analyze airfare

About Hopper Stock

Hopper develops a mobile application that uses big data to predict and analyze airfares. Its application provides travelers with the information they need to get the deals on flights and notifies them when prices for their flights are at their predicted lowest points. Hopper's application can be accessed through Android and iOS devices. Frederic Lalonde, Joost Ouwerkerk, and Sebastien Rainville founded Openplaces in 2007 that later became Hopper, with its headquarters in Montreal in Canada with an additional office in Boston in Massachusetts. Hopper spent several years experimenting with different tools, technology and algorithms to collect, organize and manage massive amounts of travel data. It now analyzes billions of flight prices daily to provide data-driven research and predictive models, with the aim of providing flight pricing transparency and insight to consumers. Brightspark, Atlas Venture and OMERS Ventures back Hopper.
