Jointli is an end-to-end shared ownership platform that helps people set up and manage co-ownership of any type of expensive and underutilized item (like a boat, RV, or vacation home). For people looking to co-own something, it’s a social marketplace of co-ownership opportunities designed to help people find and connect with potential partners. For established co-ownerships, it’s a comprehensive web-based app that makes managing the logistics of shared ownership easy, providing scheduling, expense tracking and reimbursement, issue tracking, collaboration and voting, and much more.
