Renly is a start-up that's trying to prove that it has what it takes to be the next platform for temporary location bookings.

Renly founder Chris Sheng was inspired to design this platform through his hairstylist ex-wife, who would sometimes rent out temporary locations to house her clients. Additionally, Sheng noticed the multitude of Los Angeles businesses that underutilized their spaces, which caused a financial strain on the property owners. Seeking to find a solution to both issues, Sheng designed Renly as an "Airbnb for commercial business spaces."

The service works so that commercial business can temporarily rent out any available space to other small businesses or individuals who might need it. Sheng hopes Renly will expand into other markets, providing a valuable for business owners, both large and small.
