The prestigious award ceremony took place on Thursday 20th July at the iconic Steel Yard in London. Competition was high and the judges noted the exceptional calibre of entries this year across multiple categories.
The Most Successful Scale-Up category included nine shortlisted companies, with Joyned receiving the highest scores from the judges. The award was collected by Oz Erez, solutions specialist at Joyned and was presented by James Day, Sales Leader at Cisco SMB UK and comedian, Maisie Adam.
Joyned has rapidly expanded over the past year, having increased their Gross Booking Value by more than ten times over between Q2 2022 and Q1 2023, and with a client base including travel industry giants such as Amadeus, RIU Hotels and OYO Vacation Homes.
The team has also grown significantly in recent months, welcoming several senior level hires including Doron Luder as VP of Sales and Lior Zysman, former CEO of Playtech Israel, who joined as VP of Customers. Oren Elbaz, former founder of TinyTap (acq. by Animoca Brands) was also welcomed as Joyned’s new Head of Design, and will lead the UI/UX development of Joyned Booking during the next phase of growth.
Commenting on Joyned’s successes to date, the Hustle Awards judges said ‘we were very impressed with Joyned, as they gave clear evidence of impressive growth, with so much potential to continuing developing in future.”
Joyned’s CEO, Jonathan Abraham, said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Joyned has been named as the Most Successful Scale-Up at this year’s Hustle Awards. I’m very proud of the consistent growth Joyned has demonstrated over the past year which is testament to the calibre of our incredibly talented team. It really shows that what we’re doing in the travel sector space is resonating with some of the industry’s biggest companies and influencers.”
Joyned Booking enables groups of friends and family who want to go on holiday together to discuss and make purchases directly on a travel site in a secure, private, online space.
