Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky [Rebroadcast]


We’re taking the summer off to recharge our creative batteries. Please enjoy some of our favorite episodes and we’ll be back in the fall with more fantastic Clever episodes!

Airbnb Co-Founder & CEO, Brian Chesky, grew up playing hockey and asking Santa for poorly designed toys so he could redesign them. A self-described “peculiar” kid obsessed with art, no one pegged him as a future CEO. He studied industrial design at RISD where he also met his future business partner. After soaring global success, Airbnb, having suffered dramatic losses due to coronavirus, is getting back to its creative values and making meaningful contributions in the modern crisis of connection.
