Bess worked as a principal at JetBlue’s Venture Capital fund, JetBlue Ventures, which invested in early-stage startups at the intersection of travel and hospitality. Her role was to source deals and grow the presence of the fund internationally. Bess worked with our portfolio companies to build out their products and gain and integrate customers. Prior to joining JetBlue Technology Ventures, she worked in product development at JetBlue Airways, where she led the content, partnerships, and entertainment technology team. In this role, I drove the product and monetization strategy for JetBlue’s high-speed Wi-Fi and seatback technologies onboard. The background with JetBlue has been a huge asset in my role at JTV. I have a deep understanding of user experience design and what does and doesn’t work for JetBlue’s customer base.
