Hive Market - A Hyperlocal Marketplace to help informal vendors and nano-businesse

A Hyperlocal Marketplace to help informal vendors and nano-businesses start selling again during the COVID-19 outbreak

Created over 1 year ago
26 Volunteers

About the Project


Although there are many options for delivery apps, their onboarding process and fees still exclude a great portion of informal vendors and nano-businesses. Many of them don't even have access to a computer or are not tech-savvy enough to set it up on their own.

Hive will address this and other constraints in an easy to use, no-fees and mobile-only platform where these vendors will be able to sell again in their neighborhoods.

We are creating an open-source global version of the app which will then be localized by country-specific teams.
