Our story


We love housing and hosting people. More than four years ago, we hosted thousands of guests from all over the world in our homes in Los Angeles. We saw firsthand homesharing and sharing our spaces fostered more empathy and more openmindedness in the guests that we hosted that we wanted to make homesharing more pervasive. In order to do so and mitigate the barriers, we built smart automation and marketing software to make the process easier for anyone. We believe in building great services and beautifully- and intelligently- designed products that will touch millions of people experiences throughout the world.

We are a 500 Startups Batch 16 company and have been featured on TechCrunch and named top 20 fastest growing startups in 500 on Mattermark!
