‘The Entrepreneurs’ welcomes on board the co-founder of global chauffeur service Blacklane and the founder and president of airline Sky Alps. Jens Wohltorf set out on the Blacklane journey more than a decade ago in Berlin, while Josef Gostner’s airline is earlier in its ascent but covering some beautiful ground as it takes wing from Bolzano.

Jens Wohltorf is the CEO of Blacklane, which he co-founded more than 10 years ago in Berlin. Jens explains to Tom Edwards how Blacklane is all about upgrading your travels. So whether you’re on the road for business, travelling with family for your summer vacation or just jet-lagged from flying long-haul, you can use Blacklane’s chauffeur service to ensure that you arrive that bit happier – and certainly more relaxed – than when you climbed into the car.
