  • Airbnb’s cofounder Nathan Blecharczyk was asked at an event if there was a time when they almost shut down the business.

  • The cofounders made a pact that if they came out of startup accelerator Y Combinator and were “not in a materially better place” after 13 weeks, they would walk away.
  • Blecharczyk said the accelerator gave the company the guidance and focus that it needed to survive.
