He relayed the best piece of advice he's ever received to the audience.

When Airbnb was going through Paul Graham's Y Combinator program, Graham told Chesky:

"Build something 100 people love, not something 1 million people kind of like."

People who really love a product will make it go viral, Graham told him.

“If you want to create a great product, just focus on one person,” Chesky advised the crowd. “Make that one person have the most amazing experience ever.”
