Yardaroo started from humble beginnings in the summer of 2018. A textbook definition of a bootstrapped startup business, founder and COO Andy Mitchell invested his life savings and countless hours of development time into the first version of the Yardaroo platform, released in early spring 2019.
What started as a simple garage sale finder app quickly turned into a pinnacle of mobile payments technology, driven in large part by co-founder and CEO Andrew Then. Andrew’s years of experience in the estate sale industry brings to bear unique knowledge and battle-tested product ideas.
When “the 2 Andy’s” officially partnered in late winter 2019, they immediately began to expand the scope of Yardaroo, building a mobile, touch-free payments platform that rivals any major payments app available today.
An unfair advantage
Andrew’s domain knowledge combined with Andy’s decades experience in software engineering give Yardaroo a distinct tactical advantage over other competitors in the buy/sell space. The team’s ability to quickly innovate, deploy and disrupt keeps the competition in “catch-up” mode.
Yardaroo is a people-first company, building tools that are both meaningful and easy to use by everyone. Inclusive, future-focused and with a strong belief in the power of teams, Yardaroo continues to drive innovation in the local buy/sell space with international ambitions.
