Microsoft BizSpark is a global program that helps fast-track the success of early stage technology startups with all the right resources, including software, support & marketing visibility.

Out of 450 startups competing from around the world, NeighborGoods won the Microsoft BizSpark Accelerator Award for Best Bootstrapped Startup. 12 companies made it to the finals and only 5 were awarded prizes.

NeighborGoods is a safe community where you can save money and resources by sharing stuff with your friends. Need a ladder? Borrow it from your neighbor. Have a bike collecting dust in your closet? Lend it out and make a new friend.

Through peer ratings and reviews, NeighborGoods provides members with all the tools they need to share safely and confidently. NeighborGoods also verifies members for an additional layer of security.

How it works
When you add an item to the NeighborGoods inventory, you choose how to share it with the community. For example, you can allow your friends to borrow the item for free and charge others a rental fee. Or you can decide to make the item only available to friends. It’s your stuff, so you set the rules.
