Company’s stage

 

Getting to Product Market-Fit

 

Before the coronavirus pandemic company was able to reach PMF and revenue through a web app for San Francisco party scene. Pandemic stopped our operations. We have reestablished our company in 2021 and just launched our mobile app on both Android and iOS on Oct 31st 2022. We have hosted multiple private activities. The results are fantastic and tells us that we are getting back to PMF quickly again! We will be on the web additional to our mobile apps soon.

 

Note: Our new technology is pandemic proof, enabling us to host virtual audio and video activities with more than 100K participants at once. We can also spin up audio and video streaming services in a matter of days.

Pain Points

  • Making friends that clicks your kinds of tribe  and creating new communities.
  • Finding activities.
  • Longing to have genuine friendships but not able to find them or not enough time.
  • Attending one same activity with other friends there is many paint points such as it’s cumbersome of deciding of time/ buying tickets/ deciding and agreeing same detail
  • Making money

The Problem

 

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.

 

The Solution

 

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.


 

Market

Summary of Customers and Market in a Few Sentences

Boonoob provides an events and activities marketplace. Creators, whom we call Super-Doers, create events and activities on the Boonoob platform and connect with event goers, whom we call Doers, through our platform’s social features. Super-Doers can charge Doers for their events and activities on a one-time or recurring basis.

 

Boonoob caters to event organizers, event promoters, bookable services professionals, businesses, and activity-centric members of friend groups, on the Super-Doer side, while catering to active people of all ages who want to discover more things to do and make friends in the process, on the Doer side.
