Joe Gebbia is a multi-disciplinary designer, creative entrepreneur, and global explorer. He is the co-founder and CPO of Airbnb, which began in 2008 out of the necessity to pay his rent. What started as three airbeds, a pop-tart breakfast, welcoming hosts and an insider’s guide to the city, is now a global phenomenon of hospitality, human connectivity and economic stimulation. With an eye for simplicity and an appreciation of craft, Gebbia leads the team in creating imminently marketable products. The results are cutting-edge yet useful tools that impact the user’s experience from the moment of online contact to the end of their physical stay.
