You might be wondering where it all began...
Here’s a note from Adam Rigby, Founder and CEO, about why he started Nabo:
When I grew up on the Northern Beaches of Sydney everyone on my street knew each other. That was more than 30 years ago and a lot has changed since then.
Today we are busier than ever. Social isolation, loneliness and a clack of connection is being felt around the country.
Here at Nabo, we believe that being connected to your community, helping your neighbours and getting out and about in your local area are keys to feeling happier, safer and living healthier.
By making it easier to meet and chat with our neighbours, everyone can live an enriched and fulfilling life in their neighbourhood.
