Every day we realize that we live in an exciting time for work, play and living. Instead of three or four big vendors providing end-to-end software suites, we have a variety of top notch products at our fingertips ready to make us more powerful and productive in our lives. But all of these great products come with a small cost: the tools we use every day don’t always work well together. We use social media, and other platforms to connect our lives to everyday things and everyday places.
The SpoutBuzz Platform aims to make your daily experiences even better. We know that just a fraction of improvement in everyday interactions between the services you use makes a world of difference. And on February 1st, we’re taking a few bigs steps forward in bringing them all together.
The SpoutBuzz Platform
First up, the first release of our core, and brand new spoutbuzz.com, where you can find live experiences all around the world, and apps that can extend the capabilities of spoutbuzz. Finding live experiences is easy and you’ll be able to extend your experiences ieven further with the spoutbuzz app coming in April. Installation is easy—you’ll be using spoutbuzz and our new apps after just a few clicks.
There are listings from a variety of categories but what makes us different is our focus on finding the hottest and trendiest events that add value to your daily life rather then a listing of tickets or events and venues you’re not interested in. No matter what you want to do, we will help you find and enjoy it.
The SpoutBuzz Difference
But that’s not all: to support and encourage developers to build apps that interact with SpoutBuzz, we’ve announced a new innovation fund. If you’re a developer or small company deciding whether the spout buzz platform can add value for you, the SpoutBuzz innovation Fund is a new source of support to help you get started building apps. The SBIF will fund both “SpoutBuzz-first” apps as well as B2B and enterprise tools that make SpoutBuzz integrations a core part of their offering.
We expect our portfolio to feature a diverse array of entrepreneurs working on solving problems for teams in every industry, function, and corner of the world. We’ll measure the success of the SBIF in the quality and adoption of the apps built by companies and by the overall investment we see in the SpoutBuzz ecosystem.
Finally, we’re happy to announce the launch of a new initiative called the SpoutBuzz Framework Applications & Strategic Technologies. This exciting initiative is intended to develop new in-house initiatives to extend the reach of the SpoutBuzz platform, including car applications, notifications and dynamic content.
There’s a lot to be excited about in these three announcements. Our goal is to differentiate ourselves from competitors by becoming a valuable tool in the daily lives of our users that help them drive their goals and objectives both personally and professionally. We will not be content with being an event or ticketing system, rather our goal is to become a daily planner that is integral to lives experiences no matter how large or small and no matter the venue. Come back soon, there’s more to come.
