My biggest venture to date is JetSmarter, a company I founded to revolutionize the private air travel industry. In 2019, JetSmarter was acquired by industry leader Vista Global and fully merged with Vista Global’s subsidiary XOJET to form a new, combined platform called XO.
JetSmarter offers private and shared jet services in a similar manner as Uber offers automotive ridesharing services. After initially noticing how tedious and outdated the process of booking a private jet was, I immediately begin working on a solution. The result is a billion-dollar company that is backed by Jay-Z, Wayne Chang, and members of the Saudi royal family.
The company has grown tremendously over the last few years and now provides services to 14,000 paid subscribers and 670,000 registered users. Worldwide, the company offers service on more than 3,200 private jets.
