Press release content from Accesswire. The AP news staff was not involved in its creation.

BELLEVUE, KY / ACCESSWIRE / October 13, 2020 / Michael Bilokonsky, CEO and president of Whitehorse Freight, is excited to announce the launch of his new website, https://michaelbilokonsky.com/. As an enthusiast of motorcycles, his website features an in-depth look into his interests as well as some interesting entrepreneurial tips in the form of articles and interviews.

“Motorcycles are my passion. Balancing my personal interests and my entrepreneurial mindset is something I really wanted to highlight on my website,” Says Biolkonsky.

The balance is definitely struck as the website sports information on how to stay safe while enjoying the ride in the article Staying safe on the road: tips for the new motorcycle owner and also describing his work experience and how he got to where he is today in Michael Bilokonsky Speaks Out on Entrepreneurship.

The new website creates a hub of information for other motorcycle riders and individuals interested in creating their own company. The site not only provides an opportunity for readers to watch and read about his tips and tricks regarding bikes and owning your own business, but also gives an insight to the life of Bilokonsky in the about section of the website.

“It has always been a dream of mine to start my own company,” states Bilonsky in his exclusive interview featured on the website. After attending college, the original plan was to become a teacher. When no opportunities arose in that field, he began working for a logistics company for five years before beginning his own business which became the Whitehorse Freight company it is today.

Controversial former Uber exec Emil Michael has registered plans for a $250 million SPAC

SPACs, or special purpose acquisition companies, are all the rage right now, and people are emerging from all corners to raise them.

Among the latest entrants — and someone who might be of interest to Silicon Valley watchers — is Emil Michael, a former Uber executive and top lieutenant to former CEO Travis Kalanick. Earlier today, Micheal registered plans with the SEC to raise $250 million in an IPO for a blank-check company that will broadly acquire a company in the tech sector.

IPO Edge had reported earlier today that the SPAC might be in the works.

The filing lists as special advisors Alphabet’s former executive chairman Eric Schmidt, and Betsy Atkins, a founder of Ascend Communications and investor who has served on so many boards that last year she wrote a book about it. Indeed, among her other roles currently, she’s on the boards of Volvo, Wynn Resorts, and Oyo Hotels.

Michael was as senior vice president of field operations at Tellme Networks, then later served as COO of the startup Klout before landing at Uber, where he was a senior vice president for business for nearly four years.

He gained prominence in the role, but also some disrepute after he publicly made comments about hiring opposition researchers to quite journalists critical of the company and following a later report that he had attended an “escort bar” in Seoul with other Uber executives, including Kalanick. Indeed, when he left the company in 2017, Uber declined to say if he left of his own accord.

Despite — or perhaps even because of — his trajectory at Uber, Michael was reportedly vetted at one point for the position of Secretary of Transportation after Donald Trump was elected president. Now, he apparently sees a way to jump back into tech by using
