In the competitive and fast-paced world of short-term rentals, partnering with investors can be a game-changer for scaling your business.


Partnering with investors is a great way to build up equity without getting a mortgage or investing your own funds.

He'll share his expertise and his team's experiences in understanding the market, finding investors to partner with, and why setting clear goals is paramount. Plus, the most important thing investors look for in a partnership.
