Czech startup easyBNB wins “Business story of the year” prize

On April 4th, 2019, the French – Czech Chamber of Commerce awarded the top prize in the “Business story of the year” category to the easyBNB company.

The prize is awarded to entrepreneurs whose project stands out in terms of originality and creativity, or who achieve financial success showing a potential for future growth.

The jury praised the winner for making use of the market opportunities and for the quality of their business model which respects rules set for short-term rentals and aims to work with local authorities.

“It is a great honour for us to be selected by the French – Czech Chamber of Commerce,” said Kevin Gestin, co-founder of easyBNB. “We are trying to build a thriving startup company, and the Czech Republic – and Prague in particular – offers us many possibilities. We appreciate the opportunity to do business here.”
