February Guest Speaker Matt from Brick Haus

Matthew started his career in consulting and software at McKinsey, Amazon, Intuit, and NASA before shifting toward revenue management in the travel industry with his startup Caspini. Matt’s a hard worker, but even he needs to relax at times, so he decided to start hosting travelers in his spare room on Airbnb for fun in 2015. Eventually, that hobby became his main business, Brick Haus, and he now supports clients in 8 countries hosting happy travelers
from all over the world.

His talk will:

  • Introduce you to short-term rentals (a.k.a., Airbnb, VRBO, HomeAway)
  • Surprise you: your long-term rental intuition doesn’t always translate to Airbnb
  • Discuss how short-term rentals can support affordable housing and workforce development
  • Highlight some of the challenges of hosting and why hosts love Brick Haus

There will also be plenty of time for Q&A, so please come with questions ready. You may also email questions ahead of time to [email protected] (no .com).
