327 Behind-the-Scenes of Launching a New Transportation Startup w/ Bharath Krishnamoorthy

In Going Deep with Aaron by AaronLeave a Comment

Ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft aren’t ideal for long distances. They cost too much.


However, trains and airlines aren’t always practical.


Bharath Krishnamoorthy believes his company, Axle Travel, is the solution. Axle is a ride-hailing service for long-distances that’s focused on providing fast and affordable transportation to the airport.


In this conversation, Aaron and B discuss the inspiration behind the company, the strategy behind launching in a new city, and why the team came to Pittsburgh.


Before he started this company, Bharath was practicing Mergers and Acquisitions at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, a global top-10 law firm.
