$6M Raised By GuestReady To Help Hosts On Airbnb And Other Services To Handle Their Property

GuestReady is a three year old company that allows shared-economy hosts manage their business on rental sites such as Airbnb. They have recently announced to raise $6 million.

The investment was supported by a Russian fund, backer Impulse VC which is backed by Roman Abramovich who is a billionaire Chelsea FC owner. However, other past backers also participated in the investment. This included Aria Group, Boost Hero4es and 808 Tech Ventures.

GuestReady is known to provide a property management platform to the owners that help them to handle the intricacies of working a shared-economy house. The company claims to cover more than 2000 properties in six different countries including Portugal, the UK, France, Malaysia, UAE and Hong Kong. As stated by Alexndar Limpert, CEO of GuestReady, Airbnb happens to be the ideal platform to work with. However, a major portion of the business is known to generate from Expedia’s HomeAway and Booking.com.

Limpert also added that the company’s annual booking volume is going to reach $50 million on a yearly basis. In the past few years, the company’s overall revenue collection have also tripled. Even the burn rate has reduced. However, he didn’t provide any specific figures.

Limpert said that this is by far the largest deal of the company. It is a strategic move to emerge as the market leader in Europe.

CEO GuestReady stated that, “quite a few conversations right now” over potential acquisitions.

He also added:

“We believe the market (for guest services) will consolidate.”

He further added:

Days after the expansion, Ethiopia’s government shuts off the internet

A couple of days after the Ethiopian ICT officials made all the public pledges so that they can improve net access, the government started to play off again. The government decided to shut off the internet so that they can coincide with the country’s national examination.

Data Provider from Oracle said to Tech Crunch that there was an internet blackout day from the 11th of June till the 14th of June. The connectivity of the internet was returning for a very brief period in the whole time span.

Some of the sources which are in the ground are known to include the countries tech community. The connectivity of IP and Mobile is now managed by a company called Ethio Telecom, which is owned by the state.

Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed and President Sahle-Work Zewde were the people who came up with this solution. Both of the officials have committed that they will break up with the existing telecom company and privatize it.

There are other reasons for the outrage because of that government of Ethiopia has not released the statement. The government official has still not ended up changing the ICT Policy. They also refused to respond to the tech crunch industry.

According to the internet, people are saying that the only reason that the Internet was switched off is because of the students. If the internet was fast, students will end up cheating.

Ethiopia is basically an East African nation with 100 million economies and the continent’s largest economy and the next cyber hub.

The start-up culture of the country has begun to grow and in just a couple of years, you will be able to see the growth of the company along with new startups.
