Vancouver, BC Best Youth Entrepreneur:
Employees: 7 In Business Since: 2018

HostGenius is a local short-term rental management company founded by a 20 year old UBC student. Through a mix of human expertise and management programs, HostGenius provides a hassle-free solution to hosting your home on Airbnb.

Our service is simple: make the life of local Airbnb hosts easier. We handle 24 hour guest communication, pricing, check-ins, housekeeping, and calendar management – all monitored by a dedicated account manager.

As the founder, I built a community both internally and externally. Internally, we have 7 youth entrepreneurs set for the same goal: to make hosting hassle-free. On top of that, we have a team of 15 housekeepers. Externally, have built a community around homeowners interested in Airbnb through our Meetup group and free seminars. Our outreach program includes partnerships with local small businesses to provide Airbnb travellers a taste of the best spots in town, including Red Burrito, Vancouver Water Adventures & the Candy Room.
