Orbit is a first of it's kind social media and marketplace hybrid. We have combined the best elements of social media such as following your friends, keeping up with their posts, giving each user a custom @username to name a few and created a marketplace that is safe, fun and intuitive. Orbit is hyper-local so you can filter through posts between 0.1 to 50 miles of you.

Orbit is aimed at millenials, our most popular demographic is people between the ages of 18-24. These are the young people that are very active on social media and find it important that their experiences are custom, catered and social. Any user who joins can sign up with Facebook, follow their friends and put up items for sale. When your friends make a listing on Orbit it shows up in your "Following Feed" you can also "Discover" items being sold near you in the "Discover Tab"...

What really impresse me about Orbit Marketplace team is the entrepreneurial spirit of the founders, street smart approach in their go-to-market strategy, very intuitive and unique UI, combining latest social media and marketplace leaders - tinder, Uber, AirBnB, Snapchat, etc.
Amaan, their Founder, has great vision, infectious charm and energy. Kim, co-founder, seems very focussed, diligent, pragmatic and hard working, keeping others grounded - makings of a very good COO/CFO. Brendan, co-founder, is creative and has ability to ask probing questions.
I think Orbit Marketplace is well positioned to become a great success story if it gets the right support and funding. The competitor landscape has Craigslist which is arch sick yet very very powerful giant with ubiquitous presence in America, Offerup and Wallapop who have been reasonably successful as evidenced by $100m+ funding received by them, however, are not yet household names. Orbit Marketplace can create its own space.
