NEIGH – Tool Rental Service

For communities in need of safe, inexpensive, and efficient tool rental, Neigh is the easy-to-use community-based app through which neighbors can list spare tools for rent and borrow others’ tools.

Neigh, short for neighborhood, represents the goal in connecting communities through the tool rental system. Additionally, Neigh, commonly used to describe the sound a horse makes, reflects their promise to have speedy delivery and reliability like a horse.

Vitto Baskets - organic produce delivery

Vitto Baskets is dedicated to promoting a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle and supporting local farms by making organic local produce more accessible.

Within only a month of operation, they sold over $1,000 of Vitto Baskets with plans to sell thousands of dollars more in the months to follow. With local newspaper publications, partnerships with local nonprofits, and soon to come additional locations, they have big plans for the company.

ASOSHI - ambitions connection platform

Launchies are ambitious, and outside of the program can struggle to find the right person to start an initiative with. ASOSHI is intended to support that challenge.

During their beta testing, they formed a manual service where we users would pay $4 to fill out a profile-making Google Form and be paired with a project partner. In less than a week, they had over 15 paying customers with a Discord community of over 70 active users. The feedback after the paying users were paired was overwhelming! Almost all of them were satisfied with the new friend they had made. Within a short timeframe of the program, the venture started talks with multiple investors about partnerships and investments.
