Andre talks about growing up during the Lebanese civil war and how discovering The Economist at age 13 inspired a spirit of entrepreneurship in him early in his life. Fleeing the violence of Beirut, Andre moves to France where his love of music led him to build his first company. From there, his journey towards success had only just begun.

Update: As of October 2019, Turo raised upwards of $450 million in funding, has 350,000 cars listed on its platform, and 12 million signups.
