WHAT WE DO
SAVE TIME AND MONEY
Bartr is a hyper-localized trading platform for college students and shared communities. We make it easy for neighbors to trade with one another. Instead of going to the store or ordering online, save time and money and Bartr with a neighbor!
Living in the dorms and the apartments can be tough. We are one of the only social apps that relies on in-person interaction. Bartr fosters relationships in the community and allows students to meet their neighbors in new outlets!
FREE TO USE
At Bartr, we don't take a cut of any transaction. Our goal is to move away from paying for goods and revert back to the golden age of trade. Need a vacuum for a last-minute clean? Trade it for a banana or two. We make trade easy, creating win-win situations for both Barterers.
WHO ARE WE?
UCLA Students. Living in off-campus apartments on a budget, we immediately saw a need for easier trading between students. We only knew a few people in our buildings, and especially during COVID-19, it was hard to meet more. We found ourselves ordering delivery or going to the store for items that our neighbors could easily provide.
To make sure that our market was viable, we surveyed close to 300 students at more than 20 different schools. The results were overwhelming. 83% of those surveyed agreed or strongly agreed that trade with neighbors would save them time and money. 60% were interested or very interested in using our app.
