LONDON, February 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Kippsy.com a collaborative accommodation site, is embracing the sharing economy by partnering with technology based peer-to-peer companies to build a unique network called Kippsy Friends. The collaborative network has brought together services for both Kippsy landlords and property owners, who are rapidly becoming a new breed of entrepreneurs.
Phil Cooper, founder and CEO of Kippsy.com says, "Since we launched six months ago, we have already launched a comprehensive loyalty scheme, and now we are truly building our collaborative network with complementary entrepreneurial businesses for our entrepreneurial landlords. We aim to add more brands and services that operate collaboratively and which benefit of our network of landlords and visitors to London."
One of Kippsy landlords, Shankxz, who has recently given up his job to run his short-let business full-time says, "I didn't see myself as an entrepreneur, but this suits me. I really enjoy meeting people, and I've had a lot of business people and CEOs book my property. Because Kippsy has a niche offering: with high-quality properties in central London, I think this is a great selling point, for people who expect that level of service. Kippsy delivers, and is supportive of landlords and guests."
