Airbnb, an online community marketplace for people seeking short term accommodation on rent, private parties, and family celebration, is one of the most successful start-up ventures founded by Brian Chesky, Nathan Blecharczyk and Joe Gebbia in August 2008. As of March 2012, the company has more than 100,000 listings including private rooms, apartments, houses, castles, manors, tree houses, igloos and boats in approximately 19,000 cities across 192 countries in the world. The company has received huge appraisal from Business Insider and Wall Street Journal for its freewheeling company culture. Its services vary from $10 for a night in a couch in Brooklyn to $5,000 for spending a night in manse in 6,500-square-foot in Squaw Valley, California.
In less than three years, Airbnb has emerged as the easiest way for people to make money from their extra space, helping them showcase their property and possessions to an audience of millions. Airbnb, through various tutorial videos, helps people to learn professional photography so that they get the best snaps and videos of what they offer. Airbnb app is available for both Apple’s iOS and Android powered Smartphone and Tablet devices.
Brian Chesky has been rewarded as the best young tech entrepreneur by Business Week, and enlisted among the top 30 under 30 enterpreneurs by inc.com.
