Delta and LinkedIn Join Forces to Create Innovation Class
It is a known fact that business people spend a lot of time flying for business. First class is often call “business class.” However, there’s a new section of seating on select Delta flights called the Innovation Class and it will likely attract many business people. The innovation class is a mentoring program at 35,000 feet in the air. The first Delta innovation class flight was taken by Eric Migicovsky, who is the creator of Pebble Smartwatch. He understood that sometimes your schedule can become overwhelming and you have very little free time. In fact, he created the Pebble smartwatch to save time so he could see what was happening on his phone without taking it out of his pocket. Migicovsky loves to talk to people and share his perspectives. Migicovsky met with James Patton to discuss their love of technology. Had they met in person, they probably would have spoke for no more than five minutes but because they were sitting in innovation class, they had three hours to discuss. This is a corporate social media match made in the sky.
