About

Introducing StreetPin

StreetPin aims to bring local people together, via a common location, interest and time. It’s a digital platform, but the magic happens when communities come together in real life. We’re here to facilitate the discovery, awareness, know-how and opportunities. Join our network of community Pinboards (mini-websites), to discover the unique local chats and deals making your town better than the sum of its parts.

About us

The StreetPin team are coming from a place of enlightenment - we’ve seen the future and the world can be a much better place if we come together as communities. Well, not really, but we’ve spent years reaching and validating the theory. We aim to remove barriers to communities, retailers, residents, services and businesses from being able to interact with location and interests in common, all in the ‘here and now’.


We have also strived to make digital solutions available for everyone, even my dad! Tech know-how shouldn’t be a reason not to do something and we’ll hold your hand all the way until you can reach your goals - from creating and maintaining your communities, to being a digital marketing extraordinaire. Or perhaps you are content with just being plugged in to the local community discussions, discovering events and picking up the latest deal from the cafe on your way home?


We want to ensure you can join a community for a minute or a lifetime



The vision

StreetPin is The Local Community Marketplace for independent businesses and services to instantly interact with surrounding communities.


It’s simple and effective via our collaborative, networked websites, helping anyone get online and start making the most of digital marketing.

Who is it for...?

For shoppers…

Communities can search for products or services: ‘can anyone recommend a plumber?’, or ‘where can I get an umbrella?’ when you’re suddenly caught in the rain. You’ll also find promotions and offers not available anywhere else. Instead of seeing a generic offer for trainers, or the standard, never-changing ‘10% off’ - you’ll see ‘50% off my last few loaves’, or ‘Free taster step class, staring at 7pm tonight!’.


For businesses…

We’re looking to provide an ecosystem which supports local businesses. Create instant promotions and target local audiences - it’s as simple as sending a tweet.


Think all this digital stuff is too complex? StreetPin is designed with you in mind - apart from the (hopefully) intuitive format, we provide a how-to section and if you still don’t feel equipped for your day, contact us at hello@streetpin.com and we’ll get right back to you.


For the High Street...

Bring back the sense of belonging and community, using digital as a facilitator for real world experiences. If you look after a High Street and are interested in giving your retailers, shoppers, residents and workers the tools that they need to collaborate, drop us a note on hello@streetpin.com


For the community minded…

Run a sports team? School or college club need a bit of organising and awareness? Have something that you think your neighbours would want to get involved in? Create FREE Pinboards right where you are - ‘Dave’s football team’, can set up a mini website (Pinboard) at the park, in a minute, becoming instantly part of the community


To bring this all together, we collate info from local Pinboards to form the first local, real-time directories, full of relevant instant deals and conversations.
