Our Story

Hey, this is Jenner Balagot, Mahalio’s Founder and CEO.

In 2012, as part of a graduate school project, I took a trip to Mabara, Uganda and met a group of great people serving a small children’s hospital in the middle of Africa. After talking with the local staff, I came to realize how much this remote hospital relied on its network of traveling friends and family to deliver important supplies to sustain their operation.

As I traveled after graduation, I started witnessing how much this person-to-person shipping network was very much of a reality for many countries in the emerging economy. Here, human ingenuity and kindness overcame the challenge of logistics in delivering a much-needed service through the family and friends network that delivered goods quickly, safely and reliably. Since then my team and I have been working tirelessly to build a network that connects friends, families, and community together on the Mahalio Network.

We want to offer the world another option to ship packages that is more affordable, faster, and reliably around the world, while bridging the geographic gap between people.  We believe that together we can improve the shipping industry, contribute to the reduction of our carbon footprint that results from our logistic redundancy while inspiring human connectivity.


Mahal = love

IO= input / output.

Equalizing Distribution

One of the world’s greatest inequalities is the unequal distribution of resources. We hope our business will equalize the playing field and empower people around the world with the goods they need.

Our travelers are constantly on the move and have delivered packages to over twelve different countries. We’re taking their feedback and making each delivery smoother for new travelers.

Jenner Balagot

Chief Executive Offier

Jenner Balagot was born in the heart of Oakland, California. His parents were immigrants from a small fishing village in the Philippines Islands. His parents would save money for two years so that they could take a trip to the Philippines with his two brothers. This sparked Jenner’s love of travel and exploration. While attending UC Santa Cruz and throughout his career, he relished visiting new countries and experiencing new cultures.  Eventually, he would travel to multiple countries around the world. He received his MBA from Saint Mary’s College. And prior to building Mahalio he worked at Airbnb.
Jenner believes in taking the path less traveled by and walking away from Omelas.
