Brian Chesky started a multibillion-dollar startup after getting an idea to make some money and provide individuals who couldnt find a place to stay when hotels were overbooked. He founded AirBedAndBreakfast with two other cofounders, Gebbia and Blecharczyk after an email to his collegue in 2007. Since its founding, they have shortened their name, now Airbnb, and expanded to over 30,000 cities and has been used by more than 60 million guests! It gives guests the ability to book unique homes and experience cities around the world like a local. Presently the startup is the second highest valued startup in the United States with a valuation of $31 Billion dollars. Although still CEO of his company, he handed daily operations to Blecharezyk while retaining 13% equity giving him a net worth of $3.8 Billion. The company is still a privately held startup but may go public in the future. One of the greatest traits of Chesky’s entrepreneur spirit is with his drive to find a new venture even after landing #8 on Forbes list of the Worlds Wealthiest Enrepreneurs under 40.
