50 Coffees: Joe Gebbia, Co-Founder of AirBnB.com

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Joe Gebbia, the co-founder of AirBnB today at their San Francisco offices.  Joe, was in the office on a Saturday of a long weekend, but made time for me so that I could pop by and get a tour of their operation as well as learn more about his experiences growing a startup in San Francisco as his learn more about their journey in launching AirBnB.

I have seen Joe speak twice, once was a few weeks ago at FailCon, the other was a few months ago at the Inman Connect Conference.  Joe and his co-founder have a very cool story that involves creating a breakfast cereal to keep the cash flowing while they continued to revise the AirBnB business model.

It was great catching up with Joe and listening to his experiences.  I look forward to watching their company continue their massive expansion.

 Their meeting rooms are all modeled after some of the real rooms
at some of the AirBnB listings
