Supercharging Travel Hosting – Founder Interview With Gabby Jarret From Joviam
What travel companies use your service?
One of our customers develops software for private airplane charter brokers, and of course we host the Travel Massive platform. We also host a number of fast growing WordPress travel blogs including Traveling Honey Bird by Jean Cheney, and Once In A Lifetime Journey by Mar Pages.
We’d love to speak to more travel companies that would like to scale on our cloud – get in touch with us 😃
Why did you start Joviam?
We started Joviam because we were tired of half-decent cloud computing costing a fortune and stinging us with hidden costs.
We wanted to give everyone access to fast and powerful web hosting technology – a product that performs better than the premium offerings on the market, but is priced so that everyone can afford it.
More than half of Travel Massive’s members are women. What’s your advice to women entrepreneurs to be successful in the technology industry?
So far, the fact that I’m female has never been an issue in building Joviam.
I’ve had a few surprised reactions, but ultimately everyone has been very encouraging. My advice would be to ignore the fact that you’re female – you have a brain and the ability/potential like everyone else. If you don’t make a big deal about your gender, then others won’t. And if they do, just work hard and persevere for what you want. Perseverance really is the key in achieving any success I think – just keep going. And going. And going! That goes for anyone though, not just females.
What’s your favorite travel app and why?
I love apps that save you money so I have more to spend on the fun things!
Where is your favorite place to travel to?
This is too tough! Can I do a top 3? OK thanks 😄
Turkey, Argentina and Italy (in no order) – for various reasons, but most of all the experiences had and the particular memories made in these countries is what puts them on this list.
