Luca Zambello is the co-founder and CEO of Jurny, a hospitality tech company offering SaaS-based management solutions designed to accommodate the evolving needs and expectations of the modern traveler. Over the course of his career, Luca has successfully launched several companies in the hospitality space and advised startups and brands in the digital advertising and marketing space for more than a decade.
As a visionary serial entrepreneur, Luca first discovered his aptitude for building businesses at the age of 17, when he organized his hometown’s biggest local event in Mantua, Italy, and doubled its size three years in a row to generate over a quarter of a million euros in annual revenue. In 2009, Luca relocated to Los Angeles and launched one of the first professionally operated Airbnb vacation rental companies, becoming one of the youngest operators in the short-term rental industry. Within two years, Luca was generating over $1 million a year in bookings with a single employee.
Luca partnered with David Phillips and co-founded Jurny in 2017, growing the company from $0 to $2.3M in revenue without selling any equity in under three years. The team has now raised more than $4.9M in funding to build technology and develop a complex infrastructure designed to remotely operate thousands of professionally run short-term units with minimal staff. The company now operates in five markets managing the highest reviewed and revenue-generating units in the industry year-over-year.
