We wanted to create the 21st Century Village Noticeboard - a single space where people could discover what was going on around them wherever they were.
Together we left our jobs to build an enterprise dedicated to making this happen.
Starting with one bedroom and one borough, we expanded across London working with local organisation to engage their community.
Today we cover all 1.67 million UK postcodes with over 150,000 local listings and partnerships up and down the country.
You can check out local events and news, find the nearest coffee shop, look up class times or start your own and tell everyone about it.
In this way we are able to make professional web development accessible to local organisations as well as generate the revenue required to grow and sustain our business.
This same technology allows us to deliver beautiful, professional and affordable websites to organisations seeking to engage local audiences. (learn more)
By reinvesting at least fifty per cent of our profits back into the noticeboard, we can continue to add more features like local donations and work with organisations to make their data more accessible to those who need it.
