Airbnb is an online marketplace and hospitality service, enabling people to lease or rent short-term lodging including vocation rentals, apartment rentals, homestays or hotel rooms. The company does not own any lodging, but acts as a broker and receives percentage service fee (commission) from both the guest and the host in conjunction with every booking. It is a privately held company available in 26 languages. The company was found in 2008, 9 years back, by the founders Brian Chesky, Joe Gebbia and Nathan Blecharczyk. The headquarter is situated in San Francisco, California. 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 65,000 cities and 191 countries. The total equity funding of the company is $3.4B by 41 investors in 10 rounds. Eventually the app will become an all-in-one travel app that lets you plan your day, book a car, and more.
