About Mike Boyd

Entrepreneur

I have spent the best part of the last 15 years trying to get over the thrill of building businesses, yet I still jump out of bed 7 days a week to do what I love.

From startup, to growth-stage and ultimately a well positioned exit or IPO, I’m interested in every stage of the business cycle.

I stay creative by building, consulting to and investing in various businesses and love nothing more than negotiating a great win-win deal.

I believe that entrepreneurship is the most effective path to changing the world so I give back by applying my time and skills to worthy not-for-profit organisations and charities.

VroomVroomVroom

Since mid-2012 I’ve lead the great company VroomVroomVroom as CEO.

Vroom compares and books car rental online at destinations all over the world. We’ve recently grown the team to 60+ people across 12 countries.

VroomVroomVroom is a tightly held private company. Our HQ is in Brisbane, Australia with regional operations based out of Singapore, Hong Kong, the UK, USA and Philippines.

I wear “three hats” at Vroom: Shareholder, Managing Director and CEO.
