Nextdoor, a San Francisco, CA-based social network for the neighborhood, raised $60m in funding.
The round was led by new investors John Doerr and Mary Meeker of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB) and Lee Fixel of Tiger Global Management. Comcast Ventures, as well as existing investors Benchmark, Greylock Partners, and Shasta Ventures also participated.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to expand nationwide. More than 22,500 neighborhoods currently use Nextdoor.
Led by Nirav Tolia, Co-Founder and CEO, Nextdoor is the private social network for the neighborhood. Its free platform, available on the Web and mobile devices, allows neighbors to create private neighborhood websites where they get to know one another, ask questions, exchange local advice and recommendations, and organize virtual neighborhood watches to reduce crime.
The company is hiring.
