Fascinating story of how Airbnb began incidentally by two art majors and a computer person and grew so fast The company was brought to my attention by a daughter several years ago and now in 2017 I will soon stay at one of these online booked BnBs This perhaps repeats their corporate beliefs often than I would like to hear them but a corporate entity with beliefs seems unusual in today's crass commercial world What is fascinating is how each potential setback was dealt with to improve the company Also interesting is the three founders emphasis on future diversification to add value to peoples travel experience throughout the world
