Just three days after our soft launch on June 12th, Uldis Leiterts, an entrepreneur from Riga and co-founder of Infogr.am (make your own infographics), found a local entrepreneur to stay with in London using Startup Stay.
A couple of days after sending a few “Request-to-Stay” messages, Uldis (left) got a positive reply from Guy Armitage: a Swiss entrepreneur based in London, founder of Zealous Co (Promotes artists & allows them to collaborate online).
Uldis’ startup was on of the winners of the TechAllStars competition and received a ticket to attend LeWeb in London with all expenses covered.
Even though Uldis could have easily stayed at a 5-Star hotel, he looked, instead, for a way to maximise his networking during those days in London and meet other entrepreneurs.
Guy hosted Uldis for three nights and both had a fantastic experience!
Startup Stay launched two weeks ago and already has entrepreneurs available in 120 cities from 37 countries! (more…)
