Gogo began, like so many great ideas, on the back of a napkin: Founder Jimmy Ray sketched his plan for an affordable telephone system in private airplanes at a Texas restaurant. Twenty-six years later, Gogo provides in-flight connectivity to much of the global aviation industry, including Air France, Delta Air Lines, and British Airways, with sales growing 30% annually over the past six years. To stay on top, Gogo is rolling out its next-gen 2Ku system to give travelers faster, more reliable Wi-Fi.
