New Era Assistance & Revenue (NEAR) was designed to be more than just a convenient way for you to purchase the things you need every day. It was designed to also reduce barriers of entry for aspiring entrepreneurs and to equip existing businesses with eCommerce and delivery capabilities for the sake of remaining competitive. In the end, we hope to improve the local economy by helping to drive sales and job growth while reducing everyone's carbon footprint with shorter shipping distances and the use of electric cars. NEAR.delivery is intended to be more than a marketplace built for consumer convenience. Hopefully it also pushes social progress.
NEAR.delivery is also a subsidiary of the social-minded conglomerate, New Era Ventures. The mission of New Era Ventures is to democratize industries by creating products that reduce barriers of entry for aspiring enterepreneurs and increasing capital for low-to-moderate-income people. The growing company currently owns business in skincare, technology, and real estate.
