Explaining Venopi's Updated Policies

Venopi is an online marketplace to help you find great spaces and connect with amazing hosts. We want to facilitate one-of-a-kind unique experiences. In order to do that successfully and make everyone happy, we all have to play by some rules. This is to ensure that all parties involved, Venopi, hosts, and guests are protected.

We recently updated our services agreement and it is important that our users understand the terms and conditions as it governs the use of our platform.

We have created this brief explainer to highlight what you need to know. Of course, we strongly recommend that you read through the full document for legal reasons, but we want to help make it simple and easy to understand.

What is Venopi and How Does it Work

When Ivana first envisioned the concept behind what would later become Venopi, she wanted to build a simple and user-friendly platform for users to find venues for events. After experiencing the difficulty of finding a location to shoot a short film firsthand, Ivana was surprised to discover that no platform existed to browse potential venues and compare prices. Convinced that creating a solution for people to easily find locations for any occasion would simplify the process of event planning, Ivana decided to build it herself.

Location. Location. Location.

No, no, this is not your random hipster laptop-screen-lit-in-the-dark stock photo. Truth be told, we do work mostly at night. Well, at least most of us do. We are a busy bunch, trying to make a damn fine idea happen. And so our after-work hours tend to get busy. Those are great evenings filled with discussions, Skype calls, code writing, decisions, endless UX debates, copy, Slack and, well, human fuel (aka food).

But… What is this, how did we get here and what have we done so far?
