washbnb | May 21, 2021

Washbnb, a tech-enabled linen solution for the short-term rental and hotel industries, has launched a crowdfunding campaign via Wefunder. The startup eliminates the laundry problem for property managers and Airbnb hosts whilst solving a key operational pain point for the reliable supply of hotel-quality bed and linen.

By launching its seed round via crowdfunding with Wefunder, everyone has the chance to take a position during a startup company during a booming hospitality sector before travel’s predicted comeback, not just wealthy accredited investors. The short-term rental sector has remained resilient during the pandemic and bookings are now at an all-time high consistent with AirDNA going into a summer of revenge travel. Washbnb is about to become an important tool for hosts and managers by eliminating common laundry challenges through automated linen procurement and management. As a tech-enabled solution, the corporate controls linen logistics and quality through data insights while exploring the newest in water and logistics tech to make sure an environmentally sustainable and efficient service. The result's an improved guest experience that reduces travel’s footprint while making businesses easier to work and grow.

Milwaukee-based, washbnb is rooted during a resurgent Midwest city featuring a fast-growing water-tech industry and fertile ground for both hospitality companies and laundry machine manufacturers. Washbnb pivoted during the pandemic with washhero.org and aims to create a community-driven, sustainable company with zebra stripes. Daniel says: “Our customers drive what we do, and that they love washbnb. We take their biggest challenge off of their plates and that we roll in the hay in higher quality, safer, and far more sustainable way. Hosting may be a great business, just check out Airbnb’s recent IPO, and we’re here to support these great businesses on the bottom, where they have it most. It’s a completely new category of business that must be created. Our customers see that and need to take a position because they need to assist. That’s how we build community.” Investment at this stage will fuel talent acquisition, research, and development also as future expansion into fast-growing, short-term rental destinations.
