Founded in August of 2008 in small San Francisco loft by three friends who had a clever idea to help them pay their rent, Airbnb has exploded onto the scene and is completely reinventing the hospitability industry.

Now a trusted community marketplace used by over 40million guests, people can easily list, discover, and book unique accommodations around the world

Whether an apartment for a night, a castle for a week, or a villa for a month, Airbnb connects people to unique travel experiences, at any price point, in more than 34,000 cities and 190 countries. And with world-class customer service and over 1.5MM properties, Airbnb is the easiest way for people to monetize their extra space and showcase it to an audience of millions. Recently valued at over $20Billion, this ‘rags to riches’ success story is only possibly because of the cult-like brand principles inherent within the business model, culture, and marketing practices.
