Wilbur Labs Launches VacationRenter
Wilbur Labs has launched VacationRenter, a company that aggregates the vacation rental listings from around the web to match travelers with the perfect place to stay.
VacationRenter takes time and effort out of searching for a resort, hotel, cabin, bed-and-breakfast or other vacation rental by pulling the best available options from top rental services. The service soft-launched in select test markets in February and already has an annual run rate of $100 million in gross annual booking value.
VacationRenter is the second company to launch from Wilbur Labs, which was founded by David Kolodny and Phil Santoro, veterans of Google’s advertising team.
VacationRenter launched with $3 million in financing from Wilbur Labs. Wilbur Labs, named after aviation pioneer Wilbur Wright, builds and scales companies before recruiting a dedicated executive team. VacationRenter will look to bring aboard a new CEO and additional team members within the next year.
