Project Description

OUR VIBE (The Scene)

The Scene is a social community and personalized recommendations service. We aim to bring a seismic shift to the New York lifestyle with a level of personalized curation that has long been missing - for a better, more "you" experience for you, with our app.

 

OUR STORY (The Scene)

 

Our founder, Ridhima, grew up in India and Singapore. Her entire life was consumed by constant travel and #catchingflightnotfeelings. 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

THE SCENE

And what do we get?

OUR TECH (The Scene)
THE SCENE

 

OUR DETS (The Scene)

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 for $8/month. 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!

 

OUR ASK (The Scene)

We’re looking to raise $20,000 for the development of iOS, Android, and a website version of the app. The first version of our service would have the keyword technology that leads you to your curated recommendations plus a few other amazing features that bring a community factor to The Scene.

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 2 goal is Miami & LA, followed by Tel Aviv, Dubai & Singapore.

Do paid memberships automatically renew?

Yes love!

When will the app be ready/launch?

Fingers crossed - mid to late 2021, but this entirely depends on how safe it is to be going out then & how many places open up. We don't want to be promoting going out in any way if it's not safe. We’d actually planned a 2020 late summer launch, but at that time NYC was peaking :(

Can anyone join?

Anyone can contribute to our crowdfunding campaign and receive rewards! You can also visit our website and sign up to be a member & receive our pre-launch services. Here’s our URL: www.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 have some money set aside for marketing once we launch 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 an app membership-based reward, you would receive all our pre-launch services instantly, and start receiving the specific app related benefits you purchased, once the app is in it's beta-testing stage towards the end of the year :)

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

Ofc you can - we love that! Just let us know via email: ridhima@thescenenyc.com CC: alice@thescenenyc.com 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 1) following us on Instagram: @thescenenewyork 2) 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, ridhima@thescenenyc.com and she'll get back to you!

Additional Questions? 

Feel free to email kayla@thescenenyc.com for anything else babe!
