Startup Grind Seattle hosts Eric Breon, Founder & CEO of Vacasa

Wednesday, November 28, 2018, 2:00 – 4:15 AM UTC

From Portland, Eric started Vacasa in 2009 after acquiring the responsibility of managing a family member's vacation home. He has since grown the company from two to over 2,500 employees, with 60% year-over-year revenue growth. Last year he secured $103.5 million in Series B funding, one of the largest rounds in the vacation rental industry.

About this event

Vacasa is the largest U.S. vacation rental management company and currently manages more than 10,000 vacation homes around the world. Hear from CEO Eric Breon about how he's growing Vacasa in the new Hybrid-Gig-Economy - a huge departure from the 100% peer-to-peer based Gig Economy because Vacasa hires the local vacation town housekeepers and property managers so that the home owner does nothing but sit back while their customers get the best vacation experience possible - and thus increasing the minimum wage in many cities - $15/hour and up - almost double the national minimum of $7.25.
