Nextdoor named to TIME’s inaugural list of the TIME100 Most Influential Companies

SAN FRANCISCO, Ca., April 27, 2021 – Today, Nextdoor is honored to be included in TIME’s first-ever TIME100 Most Influential Companies, a new list that highlights 100 businesses making an extraordinary impact around the world. 

“The global pandemic has highlighted the power of proximity. Despite increasing global connectivity, society as a whole has never been more socially disconnected,” shares Nextdoor CEO Sarah Friar. “Nextdoor has played a critical role in changing that by helping neighbors connect to trusted information, give and get help, and build real-world connections with those nearby.”

To assemble the list, TIME solicited nominations across every sector — including health care, entertainment, transportation, technology, and more — from its global network of editors and correspondents, as well as from industry experts. Each company was then evaluated on key factors, including relevance, impact, innovation, leadership, ambition, and success.
