Roomorama History

Roomorama was originally founded by Jia En Teo and Federico Folcia, two business executives with a serious case of wanderlust. After renting out their New York City apartment to finance some of their own travels, Teo and Folcia quickly saw the shortcomings of listing their space through classified sites. But the demand for an easy way to list and book a vacation rental was clear. They launched Roomorama in 2009 to help locals share their space and make some extra cash while giving ever-curious travelers like themselves a way to experience destinations like the locals.

Roomorama History
