Go For Launch podcast show 86Some of the most promising startups happen when their founders discover how to disrupt an industry. They see opportunities to radically change or improve “business as usual.”

That is what Mike Devlin and his cofounders are doing with LureBoats, an online marketplace that enables customers to book boat charters across the country right from their computer or mobile device—it’s like an OpenTable or Airbnb for fishing charters.

Mike is cofounder and CBO of LureBoats. He graduated in 2014 from the University of South Carolina, Darla Moore School of Business. Prior to LureBoats, he worked for a boutique consultancy in Boston specializing in working with medical device startups.Michael Devlin

Mike’s passion for the outdoors and creating user friendly services drove him to start LureBoats and seek to disrupt the charter boat industry.

Learn how Mike and his team are navigating the sometimes murky and deep waters of the fishing charter industry to make it easier for customers to find and book their trips. They are also expanding to serve people who want to book other types of boat charters such as sunset cruises, dinner tours, sightseeing tours and party barges.
