Plann: We leverage crowd-sourcing to create a central repository where anyone can find any public event happening anywhere in the world; anytime!

The events are of any interest category (as varied as the interests of the users posting them) accessible with or without an account; logged in or not. Once a logged in, you get a special group calendar network with unlimited calendar platforms (called planns) that organize your activities.

Problem

The problem is that there is not a central database of all public events all over the world. The point of a public event is that anyone anywhere should be able to find it; does a T.V. or newspaper ad get everyone? Do they even get your target audience? The lack thereof is a direct cause of missed opportunities both for; people local to an area not being aware of things happening outside their circle of influence [family, friends, acquaintances], and people new or visiting an area (business, leisure, or new settlement) not being aware of things happening in their current/new location.

Solution 

Plann is the simple but big solution. Plann leverages the power of crowd-sourcing to create a central repository where anyone can find any public event happening anywhere in the world; anytime!

Think of it as a craigslist for events [business or leisure; workshop conference or party] built on the principles that were used to establish mint.

Plann provides a special calendar interface where anyone [from a large scale event organizer like the Olympics to a person just giving it try] can post a public event for the whole world to see in the appropriate category so it’ll reach the target audience – all for free. A person browsing through events can filter results by date, category and location on an interactive inset map.

  1. Project Plann is a combination of happenings and schedules on a new, simple, easy to use, beautiful and fun calendar UI

The Map

 List all major “players” in the system (eg. a marketplace may have two major players: buyers & sellers) 

  • Event creators/users
  • Attendees/users of events whether private or public
  • Businesses

List out any selfish reasons why each player would need their contacts/friends to join the service

  • Event creators- which is every user because events are created by the users. It is free promotion to the world. If the attendee is outside of your circle of friends and don’t know you personally or through social media how will they find out about your event.
  • Attendees. – Finding things to do outside your circle of friends anywhere in the world anytime. Sharing “planns”(calendars) with other contacts/friends to plan private events/activities together and chat about those events/activities.
  • Business-Wants more direct contact with the costumer to tell them about specific deals and promotions. 

List out all things you could possibly charge each player for on the service


  • Event creators/attendees- nothing
  • Business- charged for their accounts which offers special perks

For 2 and 3 above give a very short reason you think the player would be motivated to need their contact or pay for the service

  • Event creators- Whether how big or small the public event every promoter(user) wants to always reach a new and bigger audience.  If event is private between members they want a easy way to plan with their family/friends/colleagues. No platform currently existing is simple enough.
  • Attendee- How often have you been to a new place and have been limited in the activities to attend because simply you would not know where to find them, what about where you currently live. Do you know the cities event website? How much you think you miss out on outside of your circle of friends?
  • Business- Businesses always want a new way to generate new customers and get there deals and promotions to a wider audience.
