About Runerra

Runerra is an emerging startup that connects communities with a new way to do commerce through a peer-to-peer marketplace. The Runerra process uses traffic within a shared community to match neighbors who are already out with shoppers near them. Simply put, Runerra is “Hey, I’m going out, who needs something?” but in an app.  After a completed order, data collected from hyper-local transactions and is shared with merchant partners within the neighborhood. Runerra is changing the way merchants gain access to a new dimension of data and is bringing communities together one run at a time.

Runerra is a young, fast paced startup based out of the Twin Cities. We work out of Target’s Innovation lab and enjoy every second of it.  Runerra is committed to hiring and developing top talent for any given discipline. We work to build an inclusive environment in which all people, regardless of gender, race, religion, or background, can come to do their best work.
