For startups with a focus on travel, there’s a three-month incubator with cash prizes that could be a good opportunity.

It’s called the Travel Experience Incubator Challenge and it comes out of a partnership between Marriott, Accenture and 1776.

The triad “welcomes ideas, both big and small, that collectively build a better end-to-end travel experience for every traveler and will support startups to prepare them for potential pilot opportunities and investments.”

Given the number of Marriott hotels around the world (6,000) this could be a great chance to get in early with them.

The group will choose six winners for a cash prize.

The incubator will begin in September.
