What's the big idea?

We provide technology tools to people who feed communities—enabling them to build profitable businesses and healthy regional food systems.

Describe the nearest player in your field.

There are several online marketplace start-ups where producers can list products for buyer discovery. Most focus on direct-to-consumer sales and tools for community supported agriculture.

How are you different from that player?

Local Orbit is the only company providing white label e-commerce and business management tools for the thousands of emerging market makers who are connecting wholesale buyers with local producers.  We also offer opportunities for local marketplaces to connect within regional food systems.
