We are providing a travel platform for trusted micro communities to rent out their homes to other members of the trusted micro community....For example we have a Startup Community where all members of this community are verified to be part of trusted startups. We also have a women professional community where women are renting it out to other other women only. Similarly we are building up employee networks, Harley Davidson riders club etc.
