Nirav began his entrepreneurial pursuits as an early employee at Yahoo! before co-founding and serving as CEO of Epinions, a website devoted to user-generated product reviews.
Epinions was acquired by Shopping.com, and Nirav was COO before the company went public on Nasdaq and was subsequently acquired by eBay.
Nextdoor was founded in 2010 and is actively used in thousands of neighborhoods across the U.S. Under Nirav’s leadership, Nextdoor has raised $210 million in funding from Benchmark, Greylock Partners, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Tiger Global Management, Allen & Company, Google Ventures, and others.
