Having debuted at the heady heights of 13th in the 2018 Startups 100 – and reached 9th last year – GuestReady is no stranger to the limelight. Its personalised approach to property rental management has seen it snap up a trophy cabinet of other awards (including Rising Star at the Shortyz Awards for co-founder and CEO Alexander Limpert), while enjoying impressive customer approval ratings across the board.

And it’s not hard to see why. Along with fellow co-founders Christian Mischler and Patrick Degen, Limpert has created a company serving property investors, homeowners, and Airbnb hosts from all over the world, including the UK, Malaysia, and Hong Kong – and filled a big gap in the market, too.

Launched in August 2016, GuestReady helps hosts with guest communication, personalised welcomes, concierge services, and the provision of amenities. It also helps property owners optimise their listings across rental sites such as Booking.com and HomeAway – maximising positive reviews, and taking the hassle out of property letting.

Now managing over 2,000 properties, GuestReady is already knocking on the door of wider global expansion. It aims to extend its reach to 35 cities across 10 countries by the end of this year – generating more than £100 million of revenue in the process.

And, with a truly international team (it speaks over 28 languages collectively), plus key partnerships with Guardhog Insurance, Airlinen, and KeyNest, GuestReady looks to be in a prime position to turn aspirations into reality…

Airbnb, watch out.
