Grabio is “a new way to buy and sell things” by requesting and offering service in your neighborhood. The free app allows users to list what they are buying and selling, from a coffee run to basketball tickets to a used Vespa. The real-time listings offer an easy-to-use alternative to services like Craigslist, and can be a great way to outsource tasks or make a bit of extra cash on the side.
Job Search Board, Inc.
Job Search Board is a combination of tools to help job seekers find and manage job opportunities. In the real world, the majority of job opportunities are not found from traditional sources, but from personal networks. The MyJobCards Facebook app helps users notify their network when they are looking for work. The job cards act as referrals to help find jobs through Facebook friends and friends of friends. Once the leads start rolling in, the Job Search Board helps track job cards, organizing each opportunity into steps within a typical hiring cycle, from applied to interviewing, all the way to hired. Job Search Board and MyJobCards work best together, and are available for free.

The kickSprout community helps users find and organize local events and join an active online community of new parents.
