Would You Invest?

Would you invest in...

An online Airbnb-style interface to reserve camping/RV parking spots on public/private land?

College apps to book study rooms, Airbnb itself, apps like Turo for renting other people's cars, and now, camping. A rising trend in the startup industry is based online and focused on short-term "sharing".

The startup itself has 40 employees and over 300,000 sites in the U.S. available to book. Oh, and they're also planning on expanding internationally soon. So, would you invest?
Yes or  No
