With two Virginia markets under its belt, a local startup has expanded yet again — this time out of state. Naborforce, a Lyft-like service that facilitates companionship and other errands for elderly people by matching them with contractors (which the company calls “nabors”), last month began service in Raleigh, North Carolina. Founder and CEO Paige Wilson launched the company in Richmond in 2018, and expanded to Charlottesville in October 2019. The Raleigh area has its own in-market coordinator, who manages the regional workload and helps vet the company’s contractors there. It’s a model borrowed from ride-share company Lyft, and one that’s expected to be replicated as Naborforce continues to enter additional markets.
