On October the 30th 2011, Benoît Panel attended Startup Weekend Brittany, France. During his summer holidays he had had an idea and he was ready to pitch it to the audience. The idea: a platform to safely rent private motorhomes and campervans between peers.

Adrien Pinson, web developer, was hooked by his pitch and joined the project. They quickly got on well and before Startup Weekend had finished they had already decided to launch together the startup IRentMyMotorhome.

Four years after, the startup adventure continues. Nowadays Benoît and Adrien are not alone anymore, 19 outstanding professionals have joined the team to continue working hard and making the dream come true.

The startup has raised 550k in funding last February, it collects more than 2000 vehicles and its community has spent 50.000 nights on its motorhomes and campervans. IRentMyMotorhome continues to grow internationally; and it all began at Startup Weekend.

Irent four years!
