DATE OF INITIAL INVESTMENT
As ‘The Neighborhood Company,’ Venn merges best-in-class digital products, trained community experts, inviting physical spaces and custom events that promote real-world connections between neighbors and neighborhoods. The company’s mission is to create Belonging for Neighbors and stronger business for its Partners.
Isolation and urban loneliness was a global pandemic long before the COVID crisis began. Over the past twenty years, virtual community has become arguably the primary way people everywhere connect. Yet, the vast majority of people feel more disconnected from their physical communities than ever before.
Venn’s Neighborhood Platform seamlessly blends technology and data with human interaction and physical spaces to promote residents’ increased sense of Belonging and connection to their neighborhood. For real estate and small business partners, this increase in Belonging correlates highly with material increases in demand and retention, creating a model that drives both impact and business.
Increase in neighbors' active participation leading to reduction in urban loneliness and isolation.
