Today we’d like to introduce you to Stefan Grant.
Stefan, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I’m a product of tourism and travel. My parents met while working in tourism in Jamaica and I traveled on a plane for the first time at the age of six. My background is in media and marketing, that lead me to creating my own record label, creative agency, and event planning company. That lead to my experience with Airbnb.
I experienced discrimination while using the Airbnb platform and that inspired me to create our own community of Black travelers and property owners to ensure we’d never have to go through that again.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has most certainly not been a smooth road. From co-founders stealing money and shady team members to developmental struggles, it has been a roller coaster, but we’ve made it through everything.
