Much like most of the tech companies on this list, Airbnb launched a successful product years ago that has transformed an entire feature of the global economy. This time, though, it’s with the short-term lodging sector. With this peer-to-peer platform, users can stay in other people’s homes instead of a hotel or other type of accommodation. While Airbnb is planning on going public, the CEO just announced that it won’t be happening in 2018.
