We’re delighted to announce that Criton is one of the three finalists in the Hospitality category for the World Tourism Forum Lucerne (WTFL) Startup Innovation Camp 2020

The selection was highly competitive as the call attracted many high potential candidates like Criton. Thus, the selection committee had the extremely difficult task of selecting the finalists from a pool of 260 candidates coming from 70 countries around the world.

As a finalist, our founder and CEO, Julie Grieve, is already entitled to go to #TravelTomorrowRasAlKhaimah free of charge and benefit from mentoring and specialized workshops from renowned business leaders. 

Criton is also one step away from winning the Ras Al-Khaimah Innovation Award of 10,000 USD and  “5 Minutes of Fame” on the main stage.
