Event: ‘Building A Billion-Dollar Startup’ with Airbnb

billion dollar imageThere might seem to be a lot of tech startups with eye-watering valuations, but that doesn’t mean building a billion-dollar company is getting any easier. It’s often as much about people, timing, execution and luck as it is that initial idea.

Check out the second instalment of StrategyEye’s ‘Building A Billion-Dollar Startup’ event in London this month, where Airbnb and Sailthru are confirmed as  keynote speakers, with more to be announced imminently. The event will also feature rapid-fire pitches from some hot hand-selected startups.

From castles and yurts to ski gondolas, Airbnb has changed the face of holidaying forever. Coming up to seven years since launch, the San Francisco-based accommodation marketplace helped lay the foundations for the sharing economy as it exists today. It could soon reportedly be worth as much as $20bn. Consumers can now book from 1m sofas, rooms or houses to stay in 34,000 cities across 190 countries, with 25m guests booked to date. UK & Ireland general manager, James McClure, will talk us through the company’s remarkable growth story.

Come down to The Escalator, in East London, on Wednesday 25th March from 6pm to 9.30pm to be part of the conversation. It’ll be a lively evening of insightful presentations and engaging discussions with top tech players, rounded off by networking drinks with more senior executives from investment firms, hot startups and advisory consultants involved in tech.
