BrightNest sets out to redefine home maintenance, launches private beta

BrightNest launches to serve the home maintenance arena in a creative, but more importantly, a useful way for homeowners. Let the fixing and upgrading begin!

New startup admitted to 500 Startups

In August, we introduced you to which takes early state companies, gives them seed investments of $10,000 to $250,000, puts them in their startup accelerator program with over 160 global mentors, Silicon Valley work space and prides themselves on offering access to a vibrant startup community. They have now announced their next batch of 34 startups accepted into their accelerator program, including BrightNest which is now in private beta.

BrightNest “will redefine home maintenance,” the company says as it offers home care tips, weekly reminders to users and step-by-step instructions for home maintenance. “Think of us as the owner’s manual for the American Dream.” The timing for the launch of the optimistic company with a fun, cheerful site design is perfect, given that millions of homeowners are opting to remodel over buying a new house.

Moving to Silicon Valley

The fledgling startup has also just announced that they are moving to Silicon Valley to participate in the 500 Startups program and while the demo day for this and the other 33 startups has not been confirmed, TechCrunch notes it will be in January 2012. Having been in the Valley for a few months, BrightNest should be ready having had some time in private beta.
