Vegvisits, the ‘airbnb’ for vegans and vegetarians, is a platform that connects vegan and vegetarian locals with accommodations (everything ranging from homes, B&Bs, cabins, boats, etc.) to like-minded travelers.
Since officially launching our site in 2021, we have roughly 1000 listings in 80 countries. We solve all of the problems that vegans and vegetarians face when booking a trip, whether it’s food options and convenience, accommodation affordability, or the risks in booking with Airbnb, and 99.8% of all trips taken through Vegvisits have received 5-star reviews, many of which travelers say are life-changing, something that other home-sharing platforms can’t say.
Between the convenience of a meat-free kitchen, local knowledge on where to go to get the best vegan food, the connection guests feel immediately upon meeting the owners, as well as the extra offerings many of the accommodations provide, including plant-based, home-made meals, this total package brings to the guest a feeling of peace of mind that enables them to truly enjoy their trip unlike any other.
Chief Marketing Officer Role:
Vegvisits is looking for a chief marketing officer to join our executive team and help scale our startup. He/she will be working alongside the CEO to help spread the word about the platform and tell our story. The perfect candidate is someone that has what it takes to work at a startup – meaning a willingness to get their hands dirty and work long hours in exchange for ownership in the company (initially).
We would also like for this candidate to be resourceful and reliable, able to work independently to get the job done, and have experience with most or all of the following:
- Social media content creation
- Video editing skills
- Facebook/Instagram ads – creation and analysis
- Pinterest / Pinterest ads – creation and analysis
- Google AdWords
- Influencer marketing
- Creating Newsletters
- Starting a referral program and/or affiliate program
- Starting a brand ambassador program
On a personal level, we are looking for a trustworthy person. A passion for the vegan lifestyle is a must!
Please note, the salary will be largely equity-based in the short-term. However this is a great opportunity to join an early-stage startup in an emerging market (both the plant-based and sharing economy space) with high growth opportunities.

Vegvisits is the ‘Airbnb’ for vegans and vegetarians. It is an online home-sharing platform that connects travelers to vegan and vegetarian locals with accommodations located worldwide. The BETA platform, launched in 2016, currently hosts 1K listings in over 80 countries.
The Vegvisits platform accommodates all types of listings – from retreats, hotels, B&B’s and entire vacation homes to private and shared rooms in host’s primary residences. Renting an accommodation with a Vegvisits hosts eliminates many of the eating problems vegans and vegetarians face while traveling. Guests are provided with useful inside knowledge on the best food in the area, have access to a meat-free kitchen to make their own meals, and can search for accommodations based on their favorite appliances.
As hosts, in addition to meeting a diverse set of people from around the world and earning extra income, the platform sets their mind at ease - they list their space as either vegan or vegetarian, and are assured that their kitchen and home remains just as they like it.
Although hosts must be either vegan or vegetarian to list their accommodation, guests do not have to be as long as they respect the rules and ethos of the community as they travel. The founders created the platform with the goal in mind to be an invaluable resource for flexitarians and the veg-curious to learn more about the vegan lifestyle while staying with locals.
Home-sharing is a beautiful concept that empowers people around the globe, and makes traveling an enjoyable, exciting and affordable way to see the world, brimming with the life that both guests and hosts bring to the experience. But as Airbnb has grown, it’s lost its touch, and often the risks outweigh the potential for an amazing stay.
We’ve taken everything we love about Airbnb and made it our own – a site specifically designed for the niche community of vegans and vegetarians, where members are able to benefit from the increased trust and reliability that comes from having shared lifestyles and values. With Vegvisits, it’s less like you are staying with a stranger and more like a good friend that you have just met.
As one traveler describes her experience, “It was as if we met a friend whom we didn’t see for years, despite having never met each other at all, and whom we’d love to stay in touch with – from now on and forever.”
