How FemmeBnb Helps Women Travel Safe & Comfortably with Yaa Birago

Solo travel is a rising trend, but it can be dangerous — especially for women.

Yaa Birago is a tech entrepreneur, philanthropist, mentor, and the co-founder and CEO of FemmeBnb, the first social networking vacation and STR platform for women, by women. FemmeBnb allows women to rent their spaces to other women in the hopes of maximizing safety, peace-of-mind, and comfort. It also provides users with an AI-powered travel companion, to help plan their trip from start to finish.

We discuss how FemmeBnb brought the idea of creating a secure space for women that alleviates travel-anxieties to fruition, and the company’s pay-it-forward initiative which provides menstrual products to girls in Africa in an effort to help eradicate poverty.




Leigh is onto something amazing here… she has a yurt that she built right outside Glacier National Park. You NEED to go check this place out because we can’t do it justice. The design and layout is incredible, full of natural light, decked out with stainless steel appliances.

The best part about this place is the location. A lot of people are itching to travel this summer and will want to go visit the National Parks.

Fun fact: Netty once worked at a resort at Glacier National Park. Looks like we’ll have to come back to visit and stay here! Go give Leigh a like and a follow to check out her beautiful space!

We would love to feature YOU, so don’t forget to use #STRShareSunday to get your chance!
