He continued working smart on his app and improving it very well and six years later, Markus is became the youngest founder of a billion-dollar company in Europe. The app is available in over 100 cities across the world with over 25 million customers using it and over 500,000 bolt drivers.
He started the business with only 5000 euro(5,565 Usd),loan from the family to build this app, in summer after graduating from highschool. Vilig said that he was inspired by Skype, which was also developed in Estonia. At the beginning things were hard because uber had taken over, but Vilig took the street to recruit drivers, and as time goes on, bolt is now among the best and biggest taxify companies in the world.
The drivers of bolt usually earn over 10% more on average compared to other taxify companies. Indeed everything is possible and success is usually a result of sustained efforts and strong will to win. Congratulations Vilig.
