Justine Palefsky and Tas Amina are the Co-Founders of Kindred, a members-only home swapping network that unlocks your ability to live a travel-rich lifestyle for a fraction of the cost of a hotel or AirBnb. By exchanging homes with people they trust, renters and owners alike are able to take advantage of remote-work flexibility and explore new destinations without breaking the bank.
Justine and Tas were both early-stage employees at Opendoor before deciding to start their own company during the pandemic.
