1. BuyLo ($120/year)

Ju Li (from Boston, MA, USA) started BuyLo almost 2 years ago.

Revenue
$10 / month
Team
4 founders / 1 employees

Case Study

Hi! My name is Ju Li and I am a co-founder of GetBuyLo.com. We’ve built a browser extension that’s like Honey but specifically tailored for flights. Basically, when you are at checkout on a supported flight booking site, it will automatically pop up and scan other flight booking sites for a lower price on the same flight.

We are not profitable at the moment as we launched during the COVID pandemic but early users are loving it. We’ve been featured in YCombinator’s Startup School newsletter and the front page of multiple subreddits.

SALMAN BIN RASHID SHAH SAYEEM (from Dhaka, Bangladesh) started Flight Expert Bangladesh almost 6 years ago.

Revenue
$1.5M / month
Team
3 founders / 60 employees

Case Study

Hello, I am Salman Rashid, Founder & CEO of Flight Expert. It is the first-ever online travel agency in Bangladesh. Our uniqueness was to build a state-of-the-art online travel agency with services focusing on Bangladesh primarily. This country has never before enjoyed taking assistance from any online travel agency.

However, the best part is that we achieved 50% more revenue in October 2021 than our pre-covid highest number on sales in a month, interestingly, and we are aiming to hit breakeven by March 2022 if all goes well in the market.
