Airbnb launched the Unique Airbnb Fund, which will search for abnormal and unique homes across the world. A total of 10 locations will be chosen, and the company allocated a total of 1 million USD to the Unique Airbnb Fund. Winners will be selected based on a panel of judges, which includes the actor Billy Porter and an architecture firm named MVRDV.
Interested individuals can submit an application on the Airbnb website, and the company indicated that winners will be chosen on May 15th.
Creating the fund allows the platform to highlight some of the unique offerings that are available to consumers. The company witnessed a 70% increase in searchers for unique accommodations on the platform.
