Meet Your Future Neighbors

Mid-Market advertisers are foundational to a successful multi-billion dollar advertising business and in recognition of that, we are investing in the Mid-Market segment with the launch of the Nextdoor ACCELERATE client services organization.

Nextdoor ACCELERATE is a diverse, driven, and strategic group of client services and salespeople focused on connecting brands with our community of neighbors through our growing portfolio of advertising products.
