Alaska Small Business Development Center

Juneau Airbnb, LLC

With an impressive relationship that goes back nearly two decades, Edwell John Jr. is a longtime Alaska SBDC workshop attendee who has successfully launched his Airbnb business.

Going back to 2001 with Starting a Business, tax, and QuickBooks classes, Edwell took advantage of our organization’s no-cost and low-cost business classes to help him succeed with his business formation. Earlier this year, he was ready to get started and able to take advantage of our new LLCs in Alaska – On-Demand class to help him get started.

From there, he met with Alaska SBDC Juneau Center Director, Jennifer Adams, on creating his business strategy and setting up his LLC. Edwell’s dedication and hard work paid off when he successfully set-up and started Juneau Airbnb; a welcoming and cozy one bedroom and one bathroom apartment minutes from the airport and conveniently located near all major shopping in Juneau.

As of today, Edwell is especially proud of a “first” milestone many entrepreneurs share: hosting happy guests and carrying a 5-star rating. 

As he looks forward to potentially expanding his Airbnb properties, he can be sure the Alaska SBDC is there for whatever comes next.
