ABSTRACT
This article focuses on Delray Beach, Florida-based DayJet, a technology company included in "Red Herring's" top 100 list for 2007. Ed Iacobucci is the chief executive officer (CEO) of the company, which has 100-plus employees. DayJet's idea is to provide on-demand, point-to-point air travel in regional markets for its members, allowing them to visit multiple cities in the same day. The company is planning to launch in late June 2008 with five hubs--dubbed DayPorts--in Florida, and wants to open one or two more around the country each month. That aggressive roadmap may allow the startup to grow into a major airline rival, but surviving a hypergrowth stage may prove to be DayJet's most taxing challenge.
