Entrepreneurship at Cornell


MilesAhead is re-defining the travel agency space. Our team is on a mission to become the best global luxury travel consultants through optimizing customers’ reward points and offering tailored travel planning services on demand. MilesAhead leverages its resources to satisfy affluent customers who seek effortless and smart travel planning services. Our customers are also travel advisors, who outsource their mileage and/or paid airfare business to us. We have teamed up with Valerie Wilson Travel, a pre-eminent host travel agency, to create world-leading relationships, connections, and to deliver added value to our clients. A team of mainly college-aged students, MilesAhead is on track to book over $3,000,000 worth of travel services in 2017, after booking over $2,000,000 in 2016. As we grow, we are looking for the best and brightest hospitality-minded students to join our team.
