Nirav Tolia

Co-founder and CEO

Nextdoor, the social network geared toward neighborhoods, has built momentum in 2013, including a $60 million infusion of cash from investors in October, and its CEO and co-founder Nirav Tolia has been leading the way. The 3-year-old firm released its first mobile app in May, and in June New York City began using the platform to send updates to residents. Since 2004, Tolia has been an adviser and investor in early-stage Internet firms. In 2008, he co-founded Fanbase.com, a Wikipedia-like site to house user-written bios of pro and college athletes, and ran it as CEO until 2011 when he co-founded Nextdoor. Before serving as chief operating officer of eBay’s Shopping.com from 2003 to 2004, Tolia co-founded and served as CEO of Epinions.com.
