The humble beginnings of a startup that could potentially change everything about how we consume! Located only 2 minutes away from the University of Guelph, these U of G students have a big vision that they're executing on everyday.
"Quickly & easily locate, compare, and rent consumer goods in your area instead of wasting money on products you will only use once." is what Ryan Frampton & Drew Mortensen came up with after failing to find a website allowing them to rent textbooks easily online. However, Lendr Inc. isn't just for renting school textbooks, the first 4 product categories that will be included in the initial release are camera gear, music equipment, party/event supplies, and home & lawn care equipment. This early access release will first roll out in Guelph on February 1st, 2018 and then the entire Greater Toronto Area. Ryan & Drew hope to end the days of calling different rental businesses to get a simple price comparison by allowing individuals to post items for rent into one easy to use interface. Down the road they even want to add a feature that allows consumers to get these goods delivered right to their door!
Currently, Lendr Inc. is still developing their platform, however, if you'd like to be apart of the closed February 1st, 2018 beta, you can sign up as a Lendr by going to www.lendr.info/become-a-lendr
