Airbnb says it will go public next year

Airbnb has said that it will have its initial public offering in 2020. The company is one of the last of the big unicorn herd that grew up roughly a decade ago (a herd that includes Uber, Lyft, The We Company and Postmates) to declare its public market intentions. Airbnb also said that through September 15, 2019 users who list their homes and rooms on the company's marketplace have made more than $80 billion since the company's launch.
