FACTBOX-Airbnb founders, investors win big in blockbuster IPO

    Dec 1 (Reuters) - Airbnb Inc is aiming for a valuation of
nearly $35 billion in its U.S. IPO, nearly 12 years after
founders Brian Chesky, Joe Gebbia and Nathan Blecharczyk founded
a website in a loft that went on to revolutionize the hotel and
holiday home industry.
    The IPO, one of the largest and most anticipated U.S. stock
market debuts of 2020, will bring with it a blockbuster payday
for its founders and investors.
    Here's how much the stakes of some Airbnb executives and
large investors will be worth when calculated at the high end of
its IPO price range of $44 and $50 per share:
