"Well our mission is to make hosting hassle-free for everyone and that's something that we're going to strive for and keep going.
I'm not sure what success looks like but once we live in a world that's really easy to share and put your property on airbnb and booking.com and Expedia, then I think it's mission accomplished."
Welcome to James Jenkins-Yates fom Airsorted. Airsorted provide airbnb hosts with a 24 hour hassle-free hosting platform, that basically amalgamates and services guest bookings from travel websites such as airbnb, Expedia and booking.com
The company handles the management of host properties from creating listings with photography, maintenance, restocking household items, to liaising with the guests themselves.
Homesharing is obviously a booming industry and one of the key ingredients in the ever-growing sharing economy.
Last year on New Year's Eve alone, airbnb reported 3 million people had used the service and in 2016 80 million bookings had been made with projections of $100 million for 2017.
Airsorted are already in 10 locations and by the end of 2019 the company aims to expand into 38 locations throughout the world.
They've already raised a bunch of money and are curently overfunded on Seedrs.
I spoke to James to find out how he came up with the idea..
