[Built in Chicago] Tech roundup: Reports boost Chicago’s tech ecosystem, Wanderful gets into home sharing and more
Wanderful just launched a home sharing network
Wanderful, a Chicago-based online community for women travelers around the world, just launched a home sharing network exclusively for its members. Founder Beth Santos told Chicago Inno that the idea came about from an internal survey showing that many of the platform’s users prefer hotels to apartment rentals when traveling alone, with many citing safety concerns as a reason. Santos said the survey found that 74 percent of surveyed users said they were more likely to try home sharing in an all-female network.
