The idea started to formulate while Brandon - who asked to withhold his last name and photo to maintain his privacy on campus - was interning at Google last summer and living in the cheapest corporate housing offered: two bedrooms and four people for about $65 a night (roughly $2,000 a month), he explains to Business Insider.

You're essentially burning it - you're not putting equity in anything and you're not building it up for a future - and that was really hard for me to reconcile."
