$10K Startup Grant Awarded to Valet My Bag

Valet My Bag

Woman Entrepreneur:
Anita Dipietro

Anita has a business idea that could revolutionize the travel industry.  And make us all happier travelers.  Here’s part of her story:

We aim to take the hassle out of modern day travel by adopting technology, efficient logistics and TSA vetted security procedures that allows passengers to check their luggage into their flights from the comfort of their driveway. Simply book your luggage pickup and we’ll do the rest.

Valet My Bag is an entirely women owned and operated, unique start-up which offers a full-service, secure and convenient way to check in your luggage from the comfort of your driveway (or your office, hotel, airbnb, cafe, you name it!) It works by passengers simply downloading the app or navigating to our website, booking a luggage pickup by dropping a locational pin and our skycap-drivers come to you. With a boarding pass and ID handy, we can weigh, tag and securely transport your luggage to the airport for your departure flight and check it in for you, taking one of the most time consuming stressful processes out of your travel day.
