Project Description

The Scene is a one-stop shop for instant, personalized, recommendations and guaranteed reservation at restaurants, bars, cafes and clubs in NYC. It saves your time by getting you recommendations that fit your exact preferences and guaranteeing reservation at those very spots, that too within 30-60 seconds  - essentially cutting out the need to spend several minutes consulting lifestyle blogs and then look through reservation platforms. It is quite literally a life hack for your social life and your personal "pocket concierge".

Our founder, Ridhima, grew up in India and Singapore. Her entire life was consumed by constant travel . That is until she moved to NYC at 17 to start college at NYU and quickly fell in love with the city and all it has to offer. As she went through her 4 years at the university, she began to build an extensive knowledge of places for going out in NYC and would often be the go-to resource for recommendations in her sorority as well as other larger social circles.

Why do people always seek out her help?

Well, here’s the problem a lot of New Yorkers face

And what do we get?

THE SCENE

Enter: The SCENE

the scene tech

You get access to a curation of the best places in the city, hidden spots, new spots, and in addition, are evenly matched with a selection of locations that best fit your needs with guaranteed reservations. No need for a black card concierge.

The Scene is also an exclusive social community, you’ll get to be a part of and network with. You no longer have to worry about seeing X, Y, or Z’s story from last night and feel like you missed out - hey, you were with them!

We’re looking to raise $14K for an even better user experience - we will be upgrading all tech specs of the app, as well as looking to release an iOS and Android version of the app, and improving the payment setup. 

To anyone who comes across this page, thanks so much for reading about The Scene and helping us reach our goal. If you don’t have the resources to contribute to our campaign, we completely understand and hope that maybe you can share our page with a friend or two to pass the word along. We’re grateful for all of you and your support!

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

Will The Scene be available in other cities besides New York?

We're starting off in our favorite city - NYC, but once we're more settled into the biz, #globaldomination is the plan. The Year 3 goal is Dubai, followed by Singapore, Miami, LA, and Tel Aviv.

When will the app be ready/launch?

The first version of the web app is already available for use but fingers crossed the mobile app will be up and running with upgraded tech specs by the end of the year!

Can anyone sign-up?

Anyone can contribute to our crowdfunding campaign and receive rewards! You can also visit our website and sign up for The Scene and start receiving your personalized instant recommendations right away. Here’s our URL: web.thesceneny.com. Top tip: Some of our rewards (such as True Believer & VIP) include membership so that’s two birds with one stone ;)

Will there be any funding in addition to the crowdfunding campaign?

We were just accepted to an accelerator so hopefully we'll be receiving funding at the end of that, yeah!

Is my contribution tax-deductible?

Nope

When will I receive my rewards?

Depends on the reward - so if you pick a city list, for instance, you'd receive that in your email instantly. If you picked a session / meeting oriented reward, that would launch a calendar and you would select a time slot, but you wouldn't have to wait more than a week for your meeting. If you picked a membership-based reward, we'll make sure your access is granted the same business day :)

What if I want to give/transfer my reward to someone else?

Ofc you can - we love that! Just let us know via email: [email protected] CC: [email protected] or DM us @thescenenewyork

How can I support The Scene more?

If this is something you're thinking about, we want to tell you, we love you! We're really trying to gain more #publicity so the simple answer is 1) signing up at web.thesceneny.com 2) following us on Instagram: @thescenenewyork 3) re-post our content on your story and don't forget to tag us so your followers get to know about us! In addition, you could also share our website: www.thesceneny.com and our crowdfunding page: i.e. the page you're on right now - on your social channels / IG story as well :) Once, again ILY!

Can I/my organization work with The Scene?

Omg yes, let's collab! Please email our founder, [email protected] and she'll get back to you!
