Our Virtual Team
Our virtual team consists of:
- Programmers (for our eventual app)
- Event Management Staff to gather the data and interface with the venues
- Promoters from virtually every major city nationwide
- DJs and Performers
- Bar, Restaurant and Nightlife venue staff from all over the nation.
And this campaign will enable the means to pull it all together with your help.
hrough a small round sponsored by some friends and family, we've established our central hubs in California, Florida, Las Vegas and Washington DC and launched our initial social media platforms to prove the concept in terms of follower adoption and revenue. Our goal is to launch a new city approximately every other day with said local content via additional hardware, software and services.
(Note: While our initial campaign was for $37,000, as listed above, we've received $6,000 in offline donations so far... hence the reduced request of $31,000)
