Did you recently move to a new city? Looking to meet some new people? Or perhaps you’re looking to pick up a new skill but aren’t totally sure what to add to your repertoire?
LifeCrowd is your solution.
This Santa Monica-based startup is looking to “make the quest to discovering and experiencing new activities an exciting and simple process.”
Similar to the common-interest based Meetup.com, LifeCrowd showcases an easy-to-browse list of events, including a brief description, number of open spots, names of hosts, who’s attending, etc. While Meetup focuses on curating a community over a longer duration, LifeCrowd is concentrating on individual gatherings. In other words, you don’t have to have to be an aspiring chef to join the artisan pizza making course or you need not be be a professional gambler to join the count cards like a MIT pro lecture. LifeCrowd makes the user want to keep coming back to see what’s new.
There could be value in this for any location sensitive startup. By organizing a get together around your company’s core competency, not only is this a great way to meet new people who are expressing interest in what you do, it’s an opportunity to show them that you’re quite good at it. In such a setting, attendees would arrive with their guard down, just be sure to keep things casual. Look at this as an opportunity to showcase rather than sell.
