“(JML International) has saved their clients time, energy, and resources, all while mitigating risk in some challenging locations during a very turbulent time.”
The Fox School of Business at Temple University recently highlighted the emerging success of JML International (Jasmine Mobility and Logistics) in an interview with the company’s founder and president, James Latta.
Latta recalled a train ride to Philadelphia where he struck up a conversation with another rider who turned out to be a professor from Wharton. They discussed Latta’s start-up company and how Latta, an English professor, had no formal business classes under his belt at that time. To his surprise, the Wharton professor said that was likely his best asset.
James Latta explained how he developed a platform designed to make the process of transitioning employees overseas safer, easier, and more cost effective for businesses. He shared how his idea – originally named The Jasmine Effect – was sparked by his experience in Egypt during the Jasmine Revolution in 2011, when he created a hasty prototype to help expats and students find safe housing away from the unrest.
Fast forward several years and you find his company, JML International, serving multinational corporations, using Latta’s perfected business model today to procure safe, cost effective housing solutions for workers heading to foreign countries.
Since that train ride, the company’s founder has worked with Temple University’s Fox School of Business and developed invaluable mentorships with their advisors and senior business consultants.
Since its unique beginnings, JML International has experienced a period of explosive growth and demand. Said Rachel Hazzard of the Fox School of Business, JML’s model has “taken flight” and “is now a global B2B platform sourcing safe and secure accommodations.”
“(JML) has saved their clients time, energy, and resources, all while mitigating risk in some challenging locations during a very turbulent time,” said Hazzard. She further asserted that JML’s “pipeline is robust” and points to the company’s growth in size and scope. “Their team has grown from the founder to four full-time and five part-time team members spread across six countries in four time zones.”
