Founder and CEO

Mint House

Will Lucas is the founder and CEO of Mint House, a tech-enabled hospitality company that revolutionized the industry by providing a unique travel experience for business travelers. Housed within luxury residential apartment complexes, Mint House offers the feel of a high-end hotel, with all the comforts and conveniences of your own home – all packaged and delivered via technology – in the best urban locations across the U.S.

Lucas graduated from Duke University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in Economics, Marketing and Management in 2006, and an MBA in Finance and Entrepreneurship from University of Pennsylvania – The Wharton School in 2012. As a serial entrepreneur, Lucas has founded and led two other successful consumer facing businesses prior to Mint House. In January 2017, Lucas founded Mint House in order to partner the short-term rental experience with the reliability of a hotel. Lucas preferred Airbnb and other similar short-term rentals when traveling but when on the road for business was compelled to use hotels. Lucas, who also serves as the company’s CEO, was inspired to start Mint House based on his experiences in getting a place to stay for work.
