Nextdoor

Nextdoor is a company providing a private communications platform for neighborhoods.It was founded in 2011 and is located in San Francisco, California. 

Nextdoor is a San Francisco-based artificial intelligence company that has created an online platform where individuals can communicate with people from their own neighborhood about local events, inquiring about services such as babysitting, or spreading news about emergencies. It is available in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain, Australia, and more countries. 

Product

Users can sign up for Nextdoor via web browser or mobile application. In order to confirm that they actually live in the neighborhood, they must submit proof, such as a bill or verification code that can be mailed to their address. Once on the platform, users only have access to topics relevant to their own neighborhood. Users are identified by their names and addresses so that others in the neighborhood can know who they are. Nextdoor has created guidelines for conduct on the platform and those are available on the website or through the app.

Nextdoor announced in May 2019 that it has raised a $123 million Series F led by Riverwood Capital.



Existing investors Benchmark, Tiger Global Management and Kleiner Perkins also participated in the round. The financing brought Nextdoor's total raised to $408.2 million.
