What is a crazy story about the startup?:
The story of starting up amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. We were very brave with the decision to start development in the summer of 2020. As a bootstrapping company during a period of restricted travel, there were limitations. However, we were able to optimize and manage our resources successfully to be ready for the travel comeback and launch of the new platform in 2022.
What is a company the startup looks up to, and why?:
It’s Uber. It’s among the most valuable and well-known companies in the world that disrupted several industries at once. It redefined public transportation, created thousands of jobs across the world and is an incredibly successful business.
The company in four years will be…
Public. We believe in our mission and will become a strong player in the travel industry. Our company has defined a long-term growth strategy, and we are moving forward with it.
