Episode 44: Rafat Ali, CEO of Skift

This week's guest is the great Rafat Ali. Rafat is the CEO/founder of Skift, the largest business intelligence and marketing platform in travel, providing news, information, data, and services to all sectors of the world’s largest industry.

If there's anyone we've ever spoken to that embodies the mantra of "following your own instinct" it is Rafat. His is the story of doubling and tripling down on his own vision despite all odds.

Previously, he was the founder of paidContent and ContentNext, now owned by UK’s Guardian News and Media. Prior to that, he was managing editor of Silicon Alley Reporter.
