The world is filled with events and activities. However, the discovery process for these activities is broken and segmented. Many platforms list events and activities, but there is still a long-winded search and discovery funnel for people to actually discover these listed activities (e.g. social → Google → filter/search → event listing → attend → promote on social), and there is no social layer that allows for people to find common interests with other like-minded people.
Loneliness and not able to find your kinds of community and friends.
Boonoob is an activity marketplace where people can create, promote, and participate in events and activities with like-minded friends and connections. Activity creators, called Super-Doers, can promote their events and activities and build a community around them. Activity attenders, called Doers, can engage in social interactions through chat, invitations, and subscriptions, as well as build friendships with those who share similar activity interests. Boonoob also provides revenue generating tools so creators can charge for their events and activities, get tips, and grow paying subscribers.
The result is a powerful activity discovery + promotion recommendation engine, all in a single platform, that bridges the gap between Doers and Super-Doers, and fixes activity discovery by handling the entire discovery lifecycle from beginning to end.
