Out of Office: Joe Gebbia

The co-founder of Airbnb catches up with Rich and Gianni to talk Silicon Valley, turning a vision into a business, and more on the latest “Out of Office.”

Joe Gebbia was a billionaire well before his 40th birthday, which didn’t roll around until this year — and in order to make that happen, you can bet that the co-founder of Airbnb was hustling from a young age.

From selling Ninja Turtles fan art as a grade-schooler to running up credit card debt in pursuit of getting the dream off the ground that was first called AirBedandBreakfast.com, a tireless spirit animates the Atlanta native. He explains the nature of this drive on the latest episode of Boardroom’s “Out of Office” podcast, taking Rich Kleiman and Gianni Harrell through his story so far behind the wheel of a startup enterprise that now boasts a market cap of nearly $10 billion.

Other highlights of the episode include the story of how Airbnb came to create a pair of novelty breakfast cereals during the 2008 presidential election cycle, taking the company public, and Gebbia’s ongoing journey as a philanthropist.
