Vertoe is an on-demand short term storage provider that enables instant short term storage within 5 minutes of wherever you are. Think cloud storage in the physical world. Vertoe is addressing the huge latent need of short term storage. The team bootstrapped the startup before joining Techstars in 2018. At that time, their primary users were travelers checking in and out of Airbnbs before catching their flight or landing in a city, who had a few hours to kill. But as Vertoe grows, user needs are evolving and I am fascinated. It’s not only travelers but also concert goers, professionals in-between meetings, shoppers and more. Basically anyone who is tired of lugging around heavy bags is dropping them off almost instantly at one of Vertoe’s nearby locations that can be booked in less than 2 mins. In short, Vertoe is solving for convenience and providing instant gratification to an annoying problem that people don’t normally plan for but experience almost on a daily basis. Vertoe is in 300+ locations across 25+ cities and has just launched its iOS app.

Hello all, I am Sid, Co-founder & CEO at Vertoe (Techstars ‘18). Vertoe is an on-demand short term storage provider connecting people looking to safely store their bags/items for a few hours or days to nearby local shops/cafes for $5.95/day. For every booking users can access: 🏪 24/7 locations 🔒 Tamper proof security seals 💰 $5000 insurance Vertoe’s iOS app features: Booking in 3 easy steps ~ 2 mins Enhanced speed Improved booking performance Saving valuable booking time You can test our app and use the discount code ‘PRODUCTHUNT’ to receive 50% off on your next booking. Our Story: Vertoe started as a weekend experiment after a vacation trip when my wife Neha and I were stuck lugging our suitcases on our last day after checking out of our Airbnb apartment. Through our subsequent research we saw that, out of 2.2Bn trips in the US alone, over 20% of travelers felt the need to store their bags/personal items at some point in their trip. The outcome of our research became the foundation for creating a company that would provide short term storage for anyone, anytime. As immigrants and a married couple in New York City, Neha and I had a hard decision to make, but we chose to go all in on building our new company full time. I quit my job as a Product Manager at Google, got accepted into Techstars NYC Winter ‘18 program and raised a small seed round of $1.85M through Ingwe Capital, FFVC and a few angel investors. Now, Vertoe is present in 300+ locations across 25+ cities in the U.S. And today we are very excited to announce the launch of our new iOS app on Product Hunt. Please support us in providing storage anywhere, anytime. We would love to hear your feedback!
Vertoe is an incredible service. SO easy to use. I had to check out of my airbnb at 11AM but my flight wasn't until 6PM -- instead of going to the airport, I used Vertoe so I didn't have to sit at the airtport for the rest of the day. HUGE fan
