We had the good fortune of connecting with Jack Delehey and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jack, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
I think the most important lesson working on FlyBy Ads has taught me is how valuable it is to be self-sufficient. Not just in business, but in life. Over the last year, as a global pandemic hit, FlyBy Ads’ revenues plummeted, as have many businesses. But we realized very quickly just how lucky we were, as co-founders. We had set up FlyBy Ads to be self sufficient, built off of our own efforts and $. Not relying on investors (and not having to be indebted to pay them back)or having to pay salaries has allowed us to ride out the storm and give us a much greater appreciation for setting up the business the way we have.
What should our readers know about your business?
FlyBy Ads started because Jordan and Jack (co-founders) worked for a consulting firm right out of college. Taking 50+ round trip flights/year gives a unique perspective into air travel. It was on one of these flights that the idea for rooftop advertising near airports came to them. While it certainly hasn’t been easy, as of today, FlyBy Ads has installed rooftop advertisements for some of the largest brands in the world, including Amazon, Anheuser-Busch, and ABC/Disney.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
A RiNo brewery hop is a must–Ratio, Our Mutual Friend, and Improper City. If during the spring time, try to complete the 9’s challenge: 9 ski runs & 9 holes of golf in the same day!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
