Airbnb management startup Pass the Keys secures funding, eyes internationalisation

Pass the Keys, an Airbnb management startup, announced a new round of funding this week led by Talis Capital but no figures have been disclosed.

The UK-based company is a management service that manages listings and rentals for Airbnb hosts. It plans to use the new funds to expand into more cities around the country (it currently operates in eight) and eventually go international.

“By the end of 2017, we aim to offer our service in all major cities in the UK and start our global expansion from 2018,” said Alexander Lyakhotskiy, CEO of Pass the Keys.

Lyakhotskiy and his cofounder Zoe Vu built the company through London Business School’s incubator program.

“Property is one of the biggest assets for any family and, through our technology solution, we give property owners the ability to maximise their investments hassle-free,” added Lyakhotskiy. “Our key differentiators are our revenue management system, but also our focus on security via rigorous guest vetting and photo checks.”
