About This Episode

Meet Antonio Gonzalez, President of ÖÖD House — the company behind the Instagram famous mirror houses.

Antonio is an engineer by trade, but always had a heart for entrepreneurship…

So, when the opportunity to co-found Jupe along with past podcast guest Jeff Wilson and take it through Y Combinator, the world’s most prestigious of startup accelerators, came about, he took it.

Antonio learned SO much from the accelerator where the Airbnb founders also graduated from and had an incredible couple of years at Jupe before realizing that his heart was really in hospitality.

Tune in to hear the story of how ÖÖD House, founded in Estonia, came to be, what their game plan for expanding in the US in 2024 and 2025 looks like, and the kind of hospitality entrepreneurs they are looking to partner with to make this happen.
