Fleet goes swimming with the Sharks!
Fleet, the best air travel app community and airport guide, to present at the Airport Security Shark Tank
"We're thrilled to get in front of the Sharks," says Fleet CEO Daniel Gartenberg, PhD. "The Fleet community of air travellers has never been stronger with over 50,000 users, all leveraging our innovative platform to receive and share updates about airport conditions, find airport businesses, and connect with friends and family. With the right investment partner the sky really will be the limit."
Downloads of the Fleet application skyrocketed after being featured on NBC's Today Show for its innovative approach to improving the airport experience. The massive growth in users provided the team with a flood of ideas for improving the app, all from real-world travellers looking for ways to improve the time they spend travelling.
"Fleet users are responding strongly to the ability to share updates with their fellow travellers, and in turn making the Fleet app more useful," adds Fleet founder and advisor Robert Youmans, PhD. "Most travel apps focus on the individual user. Fleet helps travellers feel connected to other travellers, and uniquely adds the benefit of feeling like you're giving back to a community. We've even implemented a feature in our most recent release that helps people see the impact of their travel on the environment, and if they want take action on it directly from within the app."
Fleet is available as a free download from the iOS app store: https://itunes.apple.com/
