Who is Veekends

V are

Veekends.com, a platform to house all ecologically run properties in the world. The big idea is to create, support and enable eco-friendly property owners to run hotels, resorts and stays that contribute positively to the environment and local communities. The idea began in 2018 when the founders started working with the UN to develop sustainable hospitality standards for small, boutique properties. Veekends.com takes it one step further by dynamically mapping the ecological footprint of any property in the world, rate and certify them as sustainable.

V believe that Owners, their employees, local communities and the environment are all our stakeholders and V have a responsibility towards them, and our investors and employees to build a most sustainable company.

In the world of startups, passion, ideas are almost routine mantras, but in the race of unique ideas and burning passion, the majority of startups slip on clinical execution, financial discipline, and ability to make an average teamwork as A+ team. And here Team Veekends excels
