Airbnb's IPO

Airbnb is an online marketplace for lodging and tourism experiences created in 2008. With an approximate value of US$38bi, the company grew considerably in the last decade as part of the sharing economy, alongside Uber.

Details on going public have not been officially announced, but according to Bloomberg Airbnb is preparing for a direct listing rather than an initial public offering (IPO). This path was also taken by Slack and Spotify, and wouldn't issue new shares or raise any new capital. Currently, there are no details on timeline as well, but Airbnb's IPO or direct listing should happen in 2020.

If you are interested in selling or buying Airbnb stock when it becomes available, you will be able to do so with the Passfolio app. You won’t need thousands of dollars to do it - you can start with only $1, because we let our users purchase fractional shares!²
