In 1996, a quote which has been loosely tied to many great artists, authors, and poets was uttered by inventor and former Apple co-founder, chairman, and CEO Steve Jobs. In what became a rather ironic turn of phrase due to Apple’s legal actions against competitors, Jobs famously said “good artists copy, great artists steal” and admitted that Apple had a history of being “shameless about stealing great ideas.” In today’s tech world where competition ranges from basements to corporate towers and campuses it’s important to recognize the importance of taking proven business concepts, innovating upon them, and succeeding as your own unique entity. This is the mission of Momentum Ventures, where the goal is to identify brilliant business leaders and give them the resources and support to innovate into a powerhouse.
Launched in 2012, FlightHub has become one of the top OTAs (Online Travel Agencies) in Canada.

FlightHub did just this and the results show. FlightHub now boasts over $1.5 billion in annual sales, has four corporate offices, and employs over 400 people.
