Brian Chesky, is an American entrepreneur, who started Airbnb, an online service for travelers to help them book an accommodation easily. His story is quite inspiring and demonstrates how a simple idea can take you to a great height of success and that such ideas emerge from the most basic necessities.Before entering the world of business,Brian studied and earned a degree in design from (RISD) Rhode Island School of Design. It was his degree, which fueled his passion for art and he was rarely seen without a sketchbook and a pen.
While studying at RISD, Chesky made his first mark in the world of entrepreneurship. He ran a hockey team, NADS, along with his friends, at the RISD. When the team was on a brink of cancellation, they geared up and started working to transform it into a brand. This re-branding work gave rise to Scrotie, a notorious RISD mascot as the team’s logo and Brian’s foray into entrepreneurship.
