Gloveler is an online marketplace and hospitality service that facilitates peer-to-peer property rental, primarily vacation rentals and homestays in Germany. Like all hospitality services, it is an example of collaborative consumption and sharing.

History

Gloveler traces its roots from a business plan competition in Stuttgart in 2007. In 2009, the website was launched.[2] Between 2012 and 2014, the 3 founders, Armin Harbrecht, Andreas Sperber, and Marco Umfahrer, all left the company.[2]

In 2015, Frank Hofmann took over as manager of the company.[2] In October 2016, the company faced preliminary insolvency.[3] In November 2016, Cultuzz Digital Media GmbH acquired the company.[4]
