Misterbnb, the Airbnb clone for gay men, raises $2 million

May 5, 2015

May 5.2015   Misterbnb , founded in April 2013 in Paris, is a short-term rental platform aimed at gay travelers. It says it has raised $2 million in a seed round. The round was led by Pole Capital , a French venture firm. It’s previously invested in VeryLastRoom , an on-demand mobile hotel booking service. Other participating investors include AngelVest, China Growth Capital, 500 Startups, MicroVentures, AngelVest, and angel investors, such as Jacky Leclerc. Last year, 500 Startups invested $0.075 million in the form of convertible security in exchange for a 7% stake in Misterbnb. CEO Matthieu Jost said his company will use the seed money to expand to “New York, San Francisco, London, Lisbon, Berlin, and Amsterdam”. It already has ground operations in Paris and Barcelona. He says the site currently has 16,000 hosts in more than 130 countries. Jost has been CTO of MyGayTrip.com , a European gay lifestyle site that touts receiving 200,000 unique visitors monthly. Misterbnb looks and sounds similar to Airbnb , the global market leader in short-term rentals. But the brand claims it has a distinct, if overlapping, clientele. For instance, it says 60% of MisterBnb hosts in Paris do not list on Airbnb or other platforms.
