'Tenant King' is a new online platform that helps neighbors create community-based networks for sharing goods and services. One of the most problematic things about living in a high-rise building is the close proximity that neighbors are forced to share with one another. However, Tenant King sees these kinds of close living quarters as an opportunity for social networking.

Tenant King operates by helping high-rise residents connect with one another. Neighbors can use the service to create community-based networks that allow them to share goods and services. In order to join these networks, uses must verify their address by mail, by scanning a utility bill or by providing an authorized credit card that is linked to their address. Once a user has joined a network, they can sell or purchase goods from their neighbors.

By taking advantage of localized networks, Tenant King replaces standalone services such as Craigslist or Airbnb.
