Description

COMPANY OVERVIEW:

Want to become part of something BIG? Join Andes STR’s team and become part of the next big thing. We are revolutionizing how people invest in short-term rental property and growing rapidly! We're a PropTech startup backed by the largest Midwest US VCs: our investors were early supporters of companies such as Airbnb, Tesla, SpaceX, Palantir, Grubhub, Slack, Uber, Lyft, among many others, and we’re heading in that direction FAST. Most recently, we won 1st place in Ed Kaplan's 25th New Venture Challenge and were featured in Built In Austin’s “The Future 5 Of Austin Tech” startups.

We were founded in 2019 with the mission of transforming STRs into an asset class that’s easy to invest in and widely available to anyone who’s interested. Our vision is to accelerate the transition to a future where people live mostly in STRs, being free to choose location and duration of stay without having to worry about maintaining their properties or being tied down to a location that doesn’t suit their needs. Andes STR is headquartered in Austin, TX, and has operations in the US, Canada, and Chile.
