About this event

Armir is the founder and CEO of Shofur, the largest charter bus reservation platform anywhere. They provide transportation to most Fortune 500 companies across 100 cities nationwide. 

Shofur was founded in 2012 by Armir with $800 and while working at his uncle’s livery company. When the Democratic National Convention arrived in Charlotte and requested charter bus service for the entire event, Harris aggregated 60+ vehicles from various companies across the southeast. After the convention’s success, Harris developed an online platform to streamline the reservation process and connect customers with bus operators. As of 2017, over 1,000 bus companies have joined the platform which services over 250 cities worldwide.

The company has experienced rapid growth due to a technology-first approach that has set it apart from other companies. Many tech publications have written about the technology including Engadget and Skift.

In August 2017, Shofur was ranked the 21 fastest growing company in the US by Inc. Magazine.
