NearSt is on a mission to get people back onto the High Street. We help people to find and buy products in shops nearby, by connecting the inventory of these shops straight to people’s smartphones. Users search for a product they want, NearSt shows them exactly who stocks it nearby in real-time, and allows them to order it for collection or 1-hour delivery in just a few taps.
We're a year old and our technology has already earned us pre-seed backing led by retail accelerator TrueStart (part of True Capital Private Equity), international awards (most recently West European Champions at Get In The Ring), and we're already live and post-revenue in our pilot category of bookshops in London. We're on a mission to get people back into local shops, and rejuvenate high streets around the world.
We're currently moving out of our pilot phase, and into our shop scale-up phase. We're connecting hundreds of new shops in multiple product verticals, and launching our NearLIVE technology platform, that will allow external developers to build location-aware e-commerce experiences.
We have a strong team with previous experience in other start-ups, digital innovation consultancy, and marketing. Learn more about us over at near.st.
