As Brian Chesky, Co-founder of AirBnB, said:
“If we tried to think of a good idea, we wouldn’t have been able to think of a good idea. You just have to find the solution for a problem in your own life.”

Uber’s ride-sharing service reduced the cost of taxis for their customers.
Netflix made trips to the video store and late fees a thing of the past.
