High Concept Statement

Find the Party

 

Status Quo

Who wants to spend time getting ready and Uber all the way to a party to find that there are no cute girls, no cute boys, or that it’s just dead tonight? Don’t you want to save time and see how fun the party is before you decide to go?

 

Competition

Most people address how lit a party is through word of mouth of their friends. A lot of people just take chances and arrive at a bar to find that there’s no one inside. Primary competition would be Snapchat wherein people can share pictures/videos of their settings. However, these snaps aren’t helpful in most situations.

 

Solution

People will be able to check-in to bars/clubs/parties through their phone and share pictures, real-time video updates or comments about the status of the party. Other people around the area will be able to see situation and know that they’ll have a good time.

 

Revenue Model

Bars/Clubs can enlist to have their establishments be a part of the app. People check-in via QR code at the establishment and eventually with enough check-ins to that place, you get a free drink (incentivizing people to check-in). Eventually with enough volume of people on the app, bars will pay a small fee to have their place be listed or featured into our system.
