Sponduu: Meet Locals For Group Events
Sponduu is a new social network designed to match you with people in your area with similar interests. Maybe your friends don’t like the symphony, or basketball, or playing hockey, or comedy shows. Sponduu connects you with people who do.
Once you create an account and punch in your zip code, Sponduu shows the Bulletin Board, which contains activities started by other members (or “Sponduuers”). Click on any activity to view the details, how many people can accept, and which members have already accepted. Actually coordinating the event takes place between whoever accepts.
The service also works well with your core group of friends. You can create groups and specify who to invite. After all available spots are filled, it disappears from everyone else’s Bulletin Board. Non-profits can use Sponduu to recruit volunteers as well.
Creating a new activity is a simple one-page form. Activities make up a very long list in a drop-down menu. They were also kind enough to add in an Other option for the truly adventurous. Give a name, date and description, and specify how many people can attend and whether the event should be open to all. Your new listing appears in the Bulletin Board.
Sponduu has a native iPhone app available in the App Store. It’s everything you’d expect. Android and WAP versions are coming soon.
Sponduu is in its very early stages of growth. The site is clean and functional, and people appear to be posting their events. At the moment, the founders are soliciting requests from partners as part of a version 2.0 launch in 2011. Could it be something like Groupon with more of a focus toward meet-ups? We’re definitely curious to see.
