Did you know that Airbnb is now worth $25 Billion? Yep, and it only began trading in 2008. Not bad. Airbnb has been a true disruptor of the travel and hospitality industry.
I have developed a property management and property investment business which revolves around websites like Airbnb, HomeAway and other large vacation rental sites. Currently small (without a proper functioning website) the potential is worldwide and massive. Airbnb alone now offers 2 million properties on its site.
We currently operate solely in London at the moment with a small team and tiny budget, and yet, we are trading an profitable. Some of our competitors are scaling up (with funding) and the results are astounding (millions in revenue).
And yet I have the most property experience of all of them, so my pitch is to any co founder who either has an amazing skillset or plenty of funds to help get this business scaled up both nationally and internationally in order to ride this wave of opportunity.
