Borrower’s Market

Borrower’s Market

Jonnie Rozin 157 Views

A platform where you borrow other people’s stuff for an hourly/daily price, or let others borrow your stuff & get paid. Think Airbnb for your stuff.

We are building a culture around letting others borrow your stuff. It’s not only about redefining the word, “borrow”, but something much greater, about redefining how people interact within a market. See, the way we view it is this. Every item has a story. Your bike isn’t just a bike, it’s a bike with a story. Share those stories with the world and make some extra money. Or find stuff you want near you.

What we have to offer is the ability to “own” things for a short amount of time, without having to worry about selling them later.

Or on the other end, buying something and instead of never making even a dime back on it, you could list it on our website or app, and potentially make more money back on it than you even spent on it.

Impact

Everyone has that one thing that they bought, then look back at it 5 minutes later and think, “why did I just buy that?” We are eliminating shopper’s regret. There are 2 kinds of customers that benefit. The borrower benefits because now, if you need something, just search people around you before you go and buy it. The owner benefits because now, when you buy an item, instead of it sitting around & collecting dust, someone else could use it and you could make your money back on it.

What I Will Do With $5,000

The real potential here is about changing how people interact in a market forever. In the same way that you check Airbnb before you book a hotel, think about how you may check this before going out and spending $500 on some new camping equipment.

This money will be used for 1 specific thing. To build up our development team. Currently, we scrapped our skills together to build a very basic MVP. However, this is not enough to scale. We need this help to take our business to the next level.
