In February’s episode we sit down to discuss Avvay, with co founder Jon Howard. Avvay has been coined as “the airbnb for creatives”. It is a platform that serves as a resource to help photographers, musicians, filmmakers, dancers, artists, and event planners find and book inspirational locations. Prior to founding Avvay, Jon spent nearly 15 years on the road as a musician, the last 7 as a guitarist for Paramore. While producing a record on tour in uninspiring hotel rooms, he realized the need for AVVAY.com. In the interview we discuss the fundraising process, operating and developing a digital platform that involves physical spaces cross country, and how he has managed to obtain and retain such a passionate and talented team. Be sure to follow along with Avvay as they roll out new cities and platforms @avvayhq.
