How to Grow Your Small Business Through Hosting on Airbnb

It’s no surprise that funding is a top priority for many small business owners. But what if you can raise funds — on the side — using what you already have?

Listing your space on Airbnb can be a great way to earn extra income and grow as an entrepreneur. In fact, new Hosts on Airbnb have earned more than $1.2 billion globally from March 2020 to March 2021 alone. [1] As travel begins to rebound, now is the time to offer up your space — whether you’ve got a spare room or an entire place — and gain the financial flexibility to invest in other ventures, fund hobbies, or retire early. And because hosting is on your terms, you can be flexible and do it regularly, while on vacation, or just a few times a year.

To learn how to fund your small business through hosting, we invite you to join our free Host Your Space on Airbnb sprint in partnership with Airbnb. Kicking off November 29 and running through March 2022, each week brings a new step-by-step guide to help you make the most out of hosting on Airbnb. You’ll also get access to live mentor sessions that provide tips and insights straight from seasoned Airbnb Hosts.
