About Us

Nextdoor is the neighborhood hub for trusted connections and the exchange of helpful information, goods, and services. We believe that by bringing neighbors together, we can cultivate a kinder world where everyone has a neighborhood they can rely on.

At Nextdoor, we also believe a neighborhood is so much more than just its residents. We recognize that thriving communities also consist of local businesses, nonprofits, and public agencies that keep our neighborhoods strong and connected.

For neighbors, building connections in the real world is a universal human need. That truth, and the reality that neighborhoods are one of the most important and useful communities in our lives, has been a guiding principle for Nextdoor since the beginning. Members in the United States, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia, Denmark, Sweden, and Canada are using Nextdoor to:

  • Recommend and discover favorite local businesses
  • Find a new home for outgrown furniture 
  • Spread the word about a lost dog or cat
  • Meet neighbors over a cup of coffee or organize a walking group
  • Receive important safety information from local public agencies

For local businesses, Nextdoor instantly connects everyone from brick and mortar stores to local service providers with their most valuable customers – their neighbors.  On Nextdoor, local businesses become a trusted member of the neighborhood and develop loyal and long-term relationships.

For nonprofits, Nextdoor’s Sell for Good offers a secure, free, and easy way for neighbors to revitalize their neighborhoods by giving back to local and national community organizations simply through buying and selling items in For Sale and Free.

For brands, Nextdoor offers a unique opportunity to reach real people at real addresses with local personalization at national scale.  Brands on Nextdoor provide value via locally relevant content and services that solve problems in neighbors’ daily lives.

For public agencies, Nextdoor provides a way for governments and public service providers to directly engage with members, which we believe is core to building stronger neighborhoods. A wide variety of public agencies — including mayors, governors, fire departments, police departments, and health departments — use Nextdoor to share critical, real-time information at the neighborhood level. No matter what the situation is, from fires to power outages, road closures to community meetings, members can be sure they are receiving trusted, local information. 

Nextdoor is a privately-held company based in San Francisco with backing from prominent investors including Benchmark, Shasta Ventures, Greylock Partners, Kleiner Perkins, Riverwood Capital, Bond, Axel Springer, Comcast Ventures and others.

Nextdoor is free, and it’s easy to sign up.
