About

We've all experienced a time when we wanted to go to some new venue or event but felt self-conscious going alone because none of our friends were interested. We let that one barrier keep us from experiencing something new and potentially fun. If we can prevent people from missing out on these experiences while helping them to make new friends, then our mission is accomplished!

How it works

  • Download our app and make a profile. Your profile is what will be displayed to other users. 
  • Pick an event. You'll see a list of events coming up in your area. Once you select one of these, you'll get to set filters based on what you're looking for. This includes the gender and age range of who you want to attend the event with, as well a price range you're willing to spend on tickets for this event. 
  • Check out the Cliques. You can then see all the other users interested in attending this event, too. Some people will appear by themselves, others will appear as groups if they've already joined together as a Clique. 
  • Join a Clique. From here, you can click on the pictures of the users to see their profiles. If you're not interested in going with a person or Clique, then just click the X on their screen, but if you'd like to join them, hit the checkmark instead. 
  • Get accepted. They'll get a notification that someone is interested in joining their Clique, and the members will get the chance to accept you into their Clique with them. Anyone is able to leave a Clique at any time. 
  • Chat and select tickets. You can then chat amongst your Clique until you're ready to select your tickets. Several seat options will be presented to your group. Each of you can select the seats you'd like to buy. The app will then take all of your preferences and assign seats to you based on which seats had the most interest. 
  • Buy tickets and enjoy yourselves! Your Clique can then purchase the tickets together, each only paying for your individual ticket. All that's left is to enjoy the show with your new friends!

About our team

We are four Carnegie Mellon University graduate students getting our Masters in Human Computer Interaction. This project started out as an assignment for our Mobile Service Innovation class then grew to be a passion project for each of us. We are invested in the success of this app because we've been in the position of our users. We'd love to build this app, and would be proud to be some of our first users!

Business Plan

We plan to offer discounts and exclusive access to our customers through connections we make with the venues where these events take place. The value we offer to these venues comes in the form of reaching new audiences and filling seats that would otherwise go unsold. Venues will pay a subscription fee to include their events on our app.

Risks and challenges

One of our first challenges will be to get a big enough user base to form Cliques to attend our first events.
Another challenge will be partnering with venues in order to offer more value to our customers.
We believe we can overcome both of these challenges relatively early in our business plan.
