Victor, a London, UK-based online marketplace for private jet charters and per seat bookings, raised over £5m in an over-subscribed, Series A funding.
Investors included Clive Jackson (Founder & CEO), Tim Richards (CEO and founder of Vue Entertainment), Andrew Pisker, co-founder of Richmond Park Partners, who has joined the Board, HNWIs and other entrepreneurs.
The company intends to use the funds to develop the technology, to grow into new markets such as Russia and the U.S. and hire new people.
Founded by serial entrepreneur Clive Jackson and launched in 2011, Victor allows users to compare and find the best prices for private jet charters. Membership is free and there are no upfront costs or hidden charges. The service also enables travel agents to create luxury travel packages and organize corporate group travel. To date, the company has contracted over 110 operators across the world with access to over 600 aircraft and in excess of 4,500 members, all of whom are high-net-worth individuals with international lives.
