Spotlight on courage: How one entrepreneur is changing the face of corporate travel
The problem: Traveling for work is stressful and unproductive
Keenya Justice found an opportunity to change the way we travel for work while she was driving through the mountains of Tennessee. She was an attorney spending hours on the road visiting victims of eminent domain.
Keenya knew that being stuck behind the wheel was making her less productive, and she knew the same was true for many other professionals like her.
The solution: A transportation service designed for professionals on the road
A self-described problem solver, Keenya came up with a solution. Keenya started Intercity: A business that transports professionals from one city to another (such as Charlotte to Atlanta) and back in the same day. Intercity makes travel more convenient and helps cut down on hotel costs.
Why did Keenya choose Hiscox?
After having no luck trying to explain her business model to other insurance companies, Keenya found Hiscox to be open and receptive to what she’d created and she found a partner and fellow problem solver.
I’m Keenya Tony Justice and I’m CEO and co-founder of Intercity. I am a problem solver. I do that on my day job and I guess I apply that throughout my life. I’m an attorney – I represent victims of eminent domain throughout North Carolina, and that was the practice that had me driving all over the state and made me realize that something needed to be done.
Intercity is solving the problem of ‘too long to drive and too short to fly.’ And we’re doing that by using existing transportation companies with professional drivers, and they basically take people from one city to another and back in the same day.
