Invest Next Door is an online marketplace that enables accredited investors to provide loan financing directly to small and medium-sized enterprises in the United States. A peer to business financial platform was launched in May 2014 allowing businesses to create listings where they set rates and terms that investors can then bid upon.[1]


Tabitha Creighton and Lisa Ohman are the founders of Invest Next Door, the first community-focused online peer to business investment marketplace.[2] Prior to InvestNextDoor, Tabitha spent several years working at Microsoft advising small and large companies on the use of technology.Lisa ran the Strategic Initiatives department at Active Network - a public software company recently acquired by Vista Equity Partners.[3]


InvestNextDoor is a crowdlending marketplace where investors directly lend to small businesses within their community.[4] Instead of loans being issued through an intermediary, businesses use promissory notes for the borrowing contract with the investors.

Business Model[edit]

On the platform, small businesses create listings including how much they want to borrow and investors bid auction-style on the rate and amount they’re willing to invest. Once approved, Businesses pay a Listing fee and Service Fee. Investors pay $25 per investment.[5]

Awards and recognition[edit]

InvestNextDoor won the inaugural Outerwall Civic Venture Award for its efforts in working to drive positive change in local communities.[6]
