Below is our recent interview with Cindy Convery, the Founder of Raw Space For Rent:

Cindy Convery

Q: Cindy, could you tell us something more about your business?

A: We help people find unusual temporary spaces to rent for anything from weddings and parties to shared garden space. Our site works just like Airbnb but for any type of space. One of our first listings was renting a space to someone who had some chickens and was looking for a temporary coop! People need temporary space for all kinds of things, and people like to make extra money renting out their unused space.

Q: How exactly does it work?

A: If you’ve ever used Airbnb then you know how our site works. A host uploads a listing – a rooftop garden, for instance. And a renter contacts the host directly about booking the space.

Q: What are the benefits of using your platform?

A: Our platform helps users find unusual spaces. Our hosts are verified and the website is secure for safe payments. And we have some really different places, like an entire 1880’s prairie town for rent – perfect for a Westworld party. For new hosts, we are offering a prepaid $100 Visa Rewards card for new listings. That’s a pretty great benefit. We decided to reward our hosts rather than pay a large sales staff. It’s working and hosts love it.

Q: Who are your clients and what markets are you targeting?

A: Our clients range through every age group. We have lots of clients looking for wedding venues, for sure. Others are looking for gallery space, pop-ups and small gatherings. We’re currently targeting growth in the southwest – Oklahoma and Texas. There are some amazing retro buildings and warehouses that make incredible party spaces.

Q: What are your plans for the future?

A: Our immediate future plan is to grow the listing base in states that aren’t exactly known as start-up locations: Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, etc. Those are great places to test markets and strategies. Then it’s upward and onward!
