Welcome to Inc.’s Founders Project podcast with Alexa Von Tobel, where we tell you stories of the guts, inspiration and drive that characterize the entrepreneurs who build the future. Every week we dig into a founder’s professional script and discover what drives them. In this week’s episode:
In 2015, Ariel Cohen co-founded TripActions to become the Netflix of travel – replacing travel agencies and complex expense reports with a premium digital experience. The company’s massive growth came to a halt in 2020, when Covid stopped business travel altogether. But TripActions adapted and came back even stronger, now with more than 9,000 customers and a valuation north of $7 billion. Ariel tells how a disastrous business trip to Ukraine is one of his aha! moments, what it was like to lose all revenue in the span of two days when the pandemic hit, and why distributed teams have now unlocked a new category of business travel.
