Brian attended the Rhode Island School of Design, from which he graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in industrial design. While in college, Brian befriended Joe Gebbia, who would later become his business partner. Following the graduation, the two moved to San Francisco, but encountered serious money problems, which eventually led to them not being able to pay the rent. Nevertheless, they had an idea of creating a website where they would advertise their apartment and rent them to other people. There was a design conference is town and all the hotels would already booked, so they put their website in business. The first guests appeared at their doors later that night and stayed for couple of days, which earned them about $1,000. They decided to invest immediately into further development of their website, and also they added another member to their team, friend Nathan Blecharczyk.

Since then, Brian`s net worth began to increase; over the years Airbnb became a multi-billion dollar company, as it is now worth around $25 billion, and Brian has around 13% of shares in it, which is the main source of his net worth.

The company struggled a bit when it started, but thanks to Brian and his idea of putting the Y Combinator and creating “Obama O’s” and “Cap’n McCain’s” based on Presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain, he helped it to survive. To speak further of the success of the Airbnb, more than 60 million guests have used its services throughout the world. In just the summer of 2015, they provided their services to more than 17 million people.

However, the peak of Brian`s career to date happened recently, when the Obama Administration named him a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship.

Regarding his personal life, Brian has dedicated himself to Airbnb, serving as its chief since the inception, finding ways to improve the business and to implement new ideas.
