About

"Mijem's mission is to connect and empower consumers."

It all began with a trip to New York where Mijem was born. A big shopping trip usually leads to the desire of selling older goods. With just a phone and no computer access, why not have a platform that is simple and mobile. We strive to create the best online social marketplace. Our app represents a new way to buy and sell with real people. Whether you are a student or prudent, we want to help you save or earn cash.

Simple: Within a few minutes, you can list your entire closet for sale. It's as easy as snapping a photo, adding a description and a price. Best of all, it's free to list! With a few clicks, browse thousands of gems and find deals.

Real: No more anonymous sellers or buyers. No more scary meetings with strangers to save money. Peek at a member's: profile, reviews, and collection. Mijem connects real people with real people to establish trusted communities.

Social: Mijem is a social marketplace. As you discover gems in the app, follow other members' collections you like, "Like" items, and leave comments for responses. "Wishlist" gems you absolutely love.

We are introducing the app to buy, sell, trade on campus or in your city. Simplicity, trust, and fun for our members are fundamental to us. Find everything you need in one app.

We are also working on other exciting consumer empowerment technologies!
