Redefining Real Estate
Daniel Mishin is a Ukrainian-American entrepreneur, founder and CEO of June Homes, a PropTech startup that’s revolutionizing the rental experience for both tenants and landlords. His interest in real estate began with a missed train and an unplanned stay in a cheap youth hostel. This experience captured his imagination and inspired him to start his first business at an early age, turning his grandmother’s empty apartment in Ukraine into a bustling short-term rental space for backpackers.
By the time he was 20, Mishin had developed this scrappy passion project into a successful brand known as Bear Hostels, which became the leading youth hostel company in the CIS region. In 2012 Bear Hostels was majority-acquired by a large restaurant holdings, Planet of Hospitality Holdings. That same year, the holding company announced a $100M investment program in youth hostels and Mishin became the CEO of the Joint Venture.
Under his leadership, the company expanded into new markets and launched new brands, including Privet Hostel—the largest hostel in Eastern Europe with conference facilities, gyms, communal bars, and 300+ beds. In 2015, Mishin exited Planet of Hospitality Holdings and joined a private investment holdings to lead investments in media, tech, real estate and startups. He was the youngest executive in the company’s history.
