Three years, three markets and a pandemic later, Richmond-based startup Naborforce is refocusing its efforts on connecting Charlottesville-area neighbors in need with those who can help. The startup aimed at aiding elderly people and their families expanded its market to Charlottesville in late 2019. Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Though founder Paige Wilson initially questioned whether her company would survive, she is pleased to see it grow into new markets — most recently expanding to Raleigh, North Carolina. First founded in 2018, the Naborforce platform connects aging people with its network of employees, or “nabors,” who provide help with non-medical tasks like errands, transportation and help around their homes, along with social engagement.
