The next big social marketplace.

PartiO is a social marketplace with the goal of revolutionizing the way college students use their stuff.

Rent instead of buying.

If you only need something for a short time, borrow it from members of the community, saving time and money.

Find items within your college.

Your friends and classmates already own the things you need. PartiO provides a mechanism to connect you to those goods.

Profit from what you own

Earn money simply by renting out things you don't need on a daily basis.
