Building the Prequel to Airbnb: Jeremy Gall on the Story of Flipkey and the Foundation of Breezeway

Meet Jeremy Gall, Founder & CEO of Breezeway  — the leading property care, operations and messaging platform for hospitality entrepreneurs.

Growing up, Jermey wanted to be a professional basketball player. And while he never made it into the NBA, he did make it into Law School.

But Jeremy’s professional career as an attorney wouldn’t last long because he was bit by that sneaky, but ever so enticing, entrepreneurial bug.

Tune into hear the exciting story of how Jeremy co-founded and built Flipkey, the first online marketplace for vacation rentals, which was ultimately acquired by Trip Advisor, why he built Breezeway, the industry’s leading operations hub, and the opportunity he sees for other hospitality innovators and entrepreneurs over the next 5 years.
