Airbnb is expanding it Business Travel program with a new site aimed directly about companies, Airbnb announced on Monday.

A limited version of the program has been available about a year ago, and more than 250 companies have joined, including Google, TBWA, Twilio, and SoundCloud.

Business travel accounts for about 10 percent of rentals, according to Bloomberg--and that is a 700 percent increase from before the product launch last July.
