Entrepreneurship Live! with Jared Simon

Founded in 2010 by experienced travel and lodging industry experts, HotelTonight is the world’s first made-for-mobile hotel booking app.

 

While the hotel and travel industry was slowly moving their businesses to online web booking, Co-Founder Jared Simon and his team built their entire product and business based on online mobile booking, which appealed to travelers who were frequently on-the-go and needed to do things easily on their phone.

 

The company is valued at $465M, boasts 25,000+ partner hotels throughout 30+ countries and offers their app in multiple languages across both iOS and Android.

 

Join us in this fireside chat as we dive into Jared’s founder story, innovation within the industry and market trends on the horizon.
