Description

Neighbourgoods aims to be an easy-to-use platform, where sellers of home-made products meet their clients. The service is based on mobile/web app that connects the customer´s needs to an available product, based on the category of goods, location, delivery-time, price. The sellers function through their personal profiles and build-up their Neighbourgood reputation. The customers give feedback not only to build up an honest and trustworthy reputation, but also to help the provider to further develop their product. The monetary transaction, and even the delivery if needed, will be handled through the app and by the company, which then takes a small percentage out of each transaction.
The idea for Neighbourgoods came about when the global Covid-19 pandemic hit our neighbourhoods and forced our favourite restaurants to close (including our own) and forced everyone to stay indoors. Many quite quickly got bored with the five dishes they are used to cooking. We personally knew the mass of potential, waiting at home, itching to get back to do something. We heard rumors of people selling their home-cooked treats, we saw random posts on social media, but couldn’t find a platform – a place where they could be easily found, all together in one click. That is why we wanted to create Neighbourgoods.

What we need help with

At the moment we are looking for partners in few different areas. As with all startups at this stage, we are looking for funding in form of angel investment and seed capital. We’re making the rounds and doing our best to get over this valley. However, we aim to quickly turn our idea into a working app and a revenue producing company and steer to look for another round of minority investors as well as other strategic partners for all the other novel ideas we have for Neighbourgoods.
