Today we’d like to introduce you to Safir Monroe.
Hi Safir, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
Our founding team has more than 35 years of experience in the aviation industry. From the problems we found working in our careers in travel, we developed a solution to decrease flight delays and improve airport operations. With our proprietary hardware technology, we can scan radio communications, plane transponder information and flight statistics to provide one solution for airports for revenue management, data analytics and tracking operations like never before!
Currently, we are piloting our technology with the Tulsa International airport and we have raised $200k up to date to expand our aviation technology across America.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The road to where we are now has been very difficult and we still have a long way to go to reach our goal of becoming a tech unicorn. We have had to pivot our technology three times however pivoting is good for startups. As we understand the pain points of people who work in aviation, we grow as a company and our technology advances.
Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about UnDelay?
Our organization provides airports with a solution that can give insight to real-time operations and profits like no other solution on the market. We specialize in hardware and software and with the combination of the two technologies, we are able to automate the data handling and collections to provide airports an easier way to access and organize their data and perform real-time actions based on our data feeds. We are extremely proud to become the face of a solution of a problem that is engulfing the nation.
We want all our readers to contact their local airport and tell them about us. If you have a connection at an airport near you, please give them my email address email@example.com. At UnDelay, we want to understand the customer and see how we can help solve their problems.
Risk taking is a topic that people have widely differing views on – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
You have to take risks to start a company. I personally have invested $50k of my own money over the past four years for our business. In order to gain, you must give up. Even though I have risked a lot of capital, my risks have been calculated. With every dollar spent, every company should learn more about the customer and the problem to eventually build the solution needed.
