The new year is here, and we’re feeling a bit sentimental. Here’s a little celebration of some of our achievements in 2022.
January 17, 2023
2022 was a strong year for the industry, as industry reports such as Expedia’s and Hostfully’s indicate. We saw our customers and partners secure funding, ship new products, and surprise the entire industry with a daring redesign. For us at Minut, it was the best year yet. We closed Series B, built an integration with Airbnb, and protected more homes than ever before (helping 40,000+ hosts and property managers!).
To celebrate, we’ve put together a little summary of our proudest moments from 2022:
We started the year with a huge boost of energy (and funding)! The $14M confirmed what we always knew: we’re building the future of travel. It empowered us to dream bigger and work harder this year.
We integrated with new property management systems
We made a lot of new friends (and partners) this year! Which means that our seamless noise resolution is now available to hosts using Apaleo, Your.Rentals, Tokeet, Hostify, iGMS, Beds24 and OwnerRez (in addition to 7 other PMSs we’ve integrated with in previous years). And there are many more to come in the very near future!
...and it attracted interest from customers all over the world! Since the launch in March, we've been working hard with our partner Keyholding on the service in the UK while searching for potential partners in other regions (more updates on that soon).
Women in tech can still be a rare sight - but not at Minut! Getting to 40% female-to-male employee ratio was an important milestone for many of us internally; but we also think it’s a great sign for the industry as a whole.
When the city of La Quinta reached out to us about a pilot, we couldn’t say no. We love supporting local governments in finding ways to support sustainable STR and introducing fair regulation instead of outright bans. The pilot brought amazing results, with 92% of participants saying Minut was easy to install.
This was another program we couldn’t say no to, and another success. Together with Airbnb, we solved 100% of noise issues in Prague. Subsequently, we launched a global offer which made the news all over the world.
We found a way to save energy without affecting guest comfort: lowering thermostat temperature once guests check out. Did you know that you can decrease your energy use by 10% if you lower the thermostat temperature by just one degree?
