Do you love designing quirky and crazy spaces? If yes, then there’s a great opportunity for you to bag a whopping amount of $10 million. Airbnb is giving away $10 million to 100 selected participants to turn their wacky ideas into revenue streams. Yes! The home rental platform has announced the OMG! Fund, asking people to submit “out-of-this-world” ideas to build “the world’s craziest spaces.” The participants will have to send their entries to the OMG! Fund via the official website of Airbnb. Airbnb’s CEO Brian Chesky announced the same via a series of tweets. He wrote, “We’re giving away $10,000,000 to create the craziest places on earth — 100 people will get $100k each.”
In another tweet, he shared that the entrants will be required to write about their ideas in 500 words which will be reviewed by a panel of judges. The top 100 applicants will get $100,000 to turn their imagination into reality and build some of the quirkiest homes.
As examples, Airbnb listed various properties including boot shaped space, a UFO, and a massive potato shaped space. “We want to make it easier to create more of these homes,” Chesky wrote on Twitter. If selected, applicants will have a chance to share their vision in more detail, with blueprints, plans, and video. The entries will be evaluated by famous interior designers Iris Apfel, architect Koichi Takada, Bruce Vaughn, and Kristie Wolfe.
