Why Airbnb is the only US company in China

John Coogan
Join my community at http://JohnCoogan.com (enter your email) I'm a huge fan of Airbnb and actually met my co-founders through Airbnb. I think the situation Airbnb is dealing with in China is absolutely fascinating and thought it would be worth sharing. If you'd like to go a layer deeper, just drop your email at http://johncoogan.com. ABOUT JOHN COOGAN: I am the co-founder of http://soylent.com and http://lucy.co, both of which were funded by Y Combinator (Summer 2012 and Winter 2018). I've been an entrepreneur for nearly a decade across multiple companies. I've done a lot of work in silicon valley, so that's mostly what I talk about. I've raised over 10 rounds of venture capital totaling over $100m in total funding. I work mostly in tech-enabled consumer packaged goods, meaning I use software to make the best products possible and then deliver them to the widest possible audience. I'm a big fan of machine learning, python programming, and motion graphics.
