Traveling Toward an Idea

Srin Madipalli, Airbnb

Accomable founder and Airbnb product manager Srin Madipalli describes how traveling the world in a wheelchair, and then learning to code during business school, revealed an opportunity to build a site that listed accessible accomodations. That product, Accomable, started as a hacked-together side-project. An unanticipated demand for accessible accommodations propelled the idea toward serious fundraising rounds and global scale.
