Why it is one to watch: One of the few high profile, consumer-brand tech companies going public in this period, it will test investors' confidence in the home-sharing business model, which has been under regulatory and competitive attack. The fact that it is occurring during a pandemic which has devastated travel also poses a challenge. 

Expected timing: December.

Type: IPO
