Why we invested
Brian, Joe and Nate had a clear vision to disrupt a fragmented vacation rental market. The frustration of trying to book hotels during convention peaks was just the hook. They drew us in further with their scrappiness, imagination and storytelling. If everything went right, Airbnb saw an opportunity to redefine the large, global and enduring travel market.
