[1:16] – Giri shares something that he believes about becoming successful that most people disagree with.

- The idea is to help people buy great investment opportunities in short-term rental markets.
[4:37] – What’s the disconnect between the existing technology in place and the real estate industry in general?
- The transactional detail of buying an asset, the technology is at least 15-20 years behind. The latest technology is not adapted yet.

[7:03] – Why Giri chose the short-term rental market.
- The idea started when Giri was trying to figure out things during COVID.
- AirBNB is now operating in 220+ countries and regions. The more you dig in to it, the more you realize that it’s a $1.2 trillion market.
