Having set up the company in 2014, when he was just three years out of university, it’s been a dizzying ride for London-raised Akintunde to find himself providing his services to the notoriously exclusive superyacht industry. ‘60 per cent of our clients are superyacht owners,’ he says. Asked to give a highlight from the year, the young entrepreneur offers to ‘narrow it down to a couple’.‘ We were able to procure “tier one” tickets to a sold-out Celine Dion concert in Monaco for an Australian billionaire client,’ he says; tier one being a status that is only given to Monegasques and Monaco residents.‘We were also able to get two clients into the Brit Awards and the Serpentine summer party in London,’ he adds.
As well as heading up the company, Akintunde is involved with Yachting Ventures – an accelerator programme for yachting entrepreneurs – and a member of Young Professionals in Yachting, an international network with chapters in Monaco and five other countries.
