misterb&b selected for Expedia's One World Accelerator Program

misterb&b announced today that it has been selected to participate in the inaugural group of Expedia's new One World Accelerator program.

misterb&b was selected from hundreds of applicants from around the world who are focused on building travel tech products to solve pain points of underserved travelers. The program recognizes and supports innovative companies with positive social impact that are shaping the future of travel and hospitality.

The program will provide misterb&b with resources, mentorship, and opportunities to even further scale its expansion into LGBTQ+ friendly hotels and now, its new travel social network layer. 

misterb&b’s new travel social network enables the global LGBTQ community to welcome LGBTQ people visiting their city from around the world, connect with LGBTQ locals when traveling, and meet up with other LGBTQ travelers while traveling.
This program will accelerate misterb&b’s mission of helping the LGBTQ+ community host, travel, connect and feel welcome wherever they go.

"Our goal is to empower the LGBTQ+ community to explore the world with confidence and authenticity," said Matthieu Jost, CEO of misterb&b. We understand the importance of connecting with others and feeling welcome while traveling, which is why we've created a platform that connects like-minded travelers and provides a supportive community. The Expedia One World Accelerator program will help misterb&b further scale its offerings and bring our unique value proposition to more LGBTQ+ travelers globally."
