Airbnb’s success story is one of idealism, disruption and stratospheric growth, and if the company’s founders have their way, the story may just be getting started. Over the past decade, the company has expanded from a single air mattress on the floor of the founders’ apartment to 4 million private accommodation listings in over 191 countries worldwide – giving Airbnb more supply than the number of rooms for the top five hotel chains combined. The company has been profitable since mid-2016 and, as of March 2017, had a valuation of $31 billion.
