The company, named YTAG, is one of a handful of companies hoping to capitalize on the boom in millennial travel.

Its founder, Zachary Fickler, said the new location in Manhattan will offer a mix from traditional travel to more traditional services, like hotel rooms, travel agencies, and travel advisory services.

“It’s a great place for travel.

We’re excited to be here,” he said.

Fickler said the YTAT could be one of the first companies to open in Manhattan.

Yale, a private university with nearly 500,000 students in 18 countries, has more than 600 full-time employees.
