About Airbnb

Airbnb, Inc., established in 2008, is an American Company that caters to arranging or offering lodging through the online marketplace. The company is based in San Francisco, California. Airbnb's founders are Brian Chesky, Joe Gebbia, and Nathan Blecharczyk. Being the biggest hospitality service worldwide, they surprisingly do not own any real estate listings or hosting events; but simply they act as a broker. They receive commissions from every booking. They launched after their founders put a blow-up mattress in their apartment, offering a bed and breakfast to offset the cost of their rent. Its original name was AirBedandBreakfast, and in 2009, the company name was officially shortened to Airbnb. One year later, they had over 15 people working inside Chesky and Gebbia's apartment and so Chesky decided to give up his room until the company moved to its first office space. In November of 2010, they raised 7.2 million dollars from Greylock Partners. This is a well-established company that has revolutionized the way people book, host and deal with lodging and accommodations.
