About

Givgive is the platform for sharing and storing items — what you need, and where you need. Share items communicating with your neighbors!

Digitize and organize your assets. We help you lend, borrow and store your items. Use any item only when you really need it, without owning or storing it.
Every person can earn money from their things with Givgive platform. Turn your assets into a small business.

Mission

We are changing consumer culture

We show people that there is no need to buy items if you can rent them anywhere anytime you need.

Mutual consumption instead of buying things.

At the same time you can lend your items, earning some money.
“Own less, allow more!” – we are opening this way to people with the Givgive app.

Vision

Our purpose today is to become the world's largest platform for sharing items.

The user digitizes his belongings and distributes them across virtual rooms, optionally giving access to them to other people so they can borrow them. The digital world of objects helps to reach a new level of integration, communication and assistance between all people.

We want to motivate everyone to a new culture of sharing. With the circular economy, all people become owners of thousands of goods without possession of them. There are so many ways our neighbors can help us, we just need an easier way to connect with them. We create a platform where items unite people and connect neighbors. 

We want to create community built on trust

We encourage people to trust more, consume items and services mutually — that will build up the Circular Economy  and lead to changing life for the better.

Founder's story

Hi, my name is Michael Seredich, I am Givgive founder.

In 2009, the idea of a startup came to me. In 2014, I managed to assemble a team for the first time and try to implement my ideas. At that moment, we were unable to release the product to the market due to the lack of investments which was hard to attract, partly insufficient product development. But most importantly, at that moment I was able to crystallize the very idea and product. That experience is very helpful to me now.

All these years, the idea of a startup has not left me, and seeing the changes in society and being in Europe, I understand that the right time is coming to launch my product.

Arriving in a new country Poland, I saw how much society needs my product, since many people are forced to change their place of residence without things and property, and these people need to arrange a life in a new place or solve their problems quickly at minimal cost.

My motivation is to realize my dream and help people live better in harmony with nature and each other.

Ecological impact

Sharing economy has a positive environmental effect by reducing consumption and CO2 emission.

Why buy something when you can rent it?
Transactions on the platform make it unnecessary to purchase new items, which in turn reduces overproduction and reduces carbon dioxide emissions.

We are working to achieve Sustainable Development Goals.
This is a set of 17 interrelated goals developed in 2015 by the UN General Assembly as 'a blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future'.

Givgive aims to develop quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient infrastructure, including regional and transborder infrastructure, to support economic development and human well-being, with a focus on affordable and equitable access for all (Target 9.1).

Givgive project reduces waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse (Target 12.5).

Givgive improves education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and early warning (Target 13.3).

Our project will deliver broader societal impact due to the fact that people will begin to interact more with their immediate neighbors, this will expand their circle of communication and interaction through sharing items. Also Givgive is developing a friendly community.
The economic benefit of the project is that it helps improve the well-being of the individual. One user earns extra money by renting out an item, and the other saves by borrowing an item. The environmental impact is that things that a person no longer uses are not thrown into a dump, polluting the environment, but can be given away to other people who need them.
Climate impact is Givgive reduces overproduction, lowering CO2 emissions and slows global warming.
