  • A registrar for defaulters in paying debts in the aviation industry. What an interesting and useful idea! How did you come up with this idea?
  • Bad debt is bad, as it damages everyone in the industry. Why do you think so?
  • Please clarify us the process of how Blacklist. aero actually works.
  • How’s the experience in real life? How many cases have you had so far, and how much is the total debt you have collected?
  • How’s the reaction of the market? Are the companies using a registrar to check defaulters now before giving credit?
  • Aren’t you afraid? Don’t you fear being sued by the companies whom you insert into the registrar and publish their defaults on social media?
  • Is what you’re doing legal? Is the legal system the same everywhere in considering what you do permitted?
  • Can you explain to us the business model of Blacklist.aero? How do you make money?
  • How do you plan to expand the use of the aviation debt registrar? Are there any plans or discussions with aviation organizations or maybe governments?
  • What are your plans in the future? Do you think other industries can benefit from your experience in making registries as well?
  • Blacklist.aero is your first entrepreneurial project I assume? Can you share with the audience your experience of leaving a secured paid job in order to start a business based on an idea you have? Weren’t you scared of taking that step?
