Kind of like Airbnb, but for startup space, Cribb enables investors to host new companies in their empty houses in exchange for equity. The network also works for celebrities who, in return for equity, want to lend their vacant homes to startups for free.

The business-based matchmaking platform helps ventures just starting out to find a location for semesters lasting three to six months. After companies register their interest on the Cribb website, the service reviews applications and passes the screened ones on to relevant homeowners. For 5% of the new business, homeowners can choose if they want to be accommodating. In addition to startup space, Cribb offers other entrepreneurial and support resources to participants looking to accelerate their funding.
