Chinese AirBnB Tujia gets popular with New Funding

Chinese AirBnB concept 

New Tujia (www.tujia.comfund raising reflects strong investor confidence in its business model and market position, which could help the company to post strong growth before an IPO in the next 1-3 years.

 Tujia raises $ 300 million 

It seems that the hot websites only need to say they seek new funds these days, and they can automatically attract a large investor interest that allows them to raise huge funds and get high valuations.

Tujia popular in China

The latest company to follow the pattern is Tujia, a site that allows owners to lease their vacant properties to travelers, using a model similar to popular US site Airbnb. Just one month after media reported that Tujia is finalizing a new funding round of $ 250 million (previous post), the latest reports say the demand was so strong that it ended up raising $ 300 million ...

This kind of fund-raising outperformance has become quite routine these days, helping to boost a new generation of Chinese Internet companies that often simply copy western business models. Others to engage such turbocharged fund-raising include Didi-Kuaidi, which started out as a taxi app operator but is rapidly moving into the private car services model pioneered by Uber. Didi-Kuaidi originally set out to raise about $1.5 billion in its latest funding round last month, but ultimately ended up with $2 billion due to huge demand. Tujia isn’t quite as advanced as Didi-Kuaidi, but the company itself has become hot property by borrowing Airbnb’s business model of linking up property owners with travelers looking for cheaper, more homey accommodations than traditional hotels. Tujia’s latest funding is its fourth to date, and follows a previous round that saw it raise $100 million about a year ago.
