5 years ago people were excited about the idea of using tech to borrow things like power drills and parking spots. There was just one problem as Adam Berk, the founder of Neighborrow, puts it: "Everything made sense except that nobody gives a shit. They go buy a drill for $30 on amazon and have it delivered in 1hr."
"Let me ask you this," Williams says. "For a drill, which by the way now costs $30, and you can get it on Amazon Now and have this thing delivered to you in an hour if you live in New York City—for something worth $30, is it really worth your time to trek potentially 25 minutes to go get something that you spent $15 to use for the day, and then have to trek back?"
