About the project :

Introduction

Community vibes is an attempt to create an end-to-end event management platform. Any event, be it a wedding or a conference or for that matter, a meet-up comes with a lot of requirements. These requirements include food, transportation, accommodation, entertainment- by no means an exhaustive list!

Many events also need to be marketed. With the rise of social media platforms, it's becoming ever increasingly important that brands try and reach out to their audience through these new-age platforms. There's a lot of other interesting stuff happening in this domain. For instance, the advent of chatbots are allowing many event managers and businesses effectively communicate the goals of their events and their businesses in a more interactive way.

Despite the availability of these new age tools which could help improve audience engagement and simplify organizing events, most event management companies and event organizers haven't been able to keep up with the times. This is where we come in.

What's our product about?

 Our product is aimed at two key segments:

For people organizing events: Our service will provide an easy to use interface that will enable one to easily select and book requirements for the successful organization of the event. WIth just a few clicks one will be able to book rooms, select the choice of menu, book transportation, find good sources of entertainment and fulfill just about any requirements by enlisting the services of local businesses that choose to be on our platform at special prices.

The platform will be freely available for this purpose.

Event organizers will also be able to enlist some other special services such as digital media marketing, public relations through chatbots and social media management.

For businesses: Our platform would serve as a way for local businesses to harness the economic opportunities presented by any event within their city/limits. It will serve as a way for them to easily present their services. Digital payments will enable quick and easy payments for the services they provide.

It will also allow new businesses to be discovered with ease. By enlisting on our platform businesses- no matter how large or small- would benefit with greater customer attraction, simplified payments and easier PR.

Our Team

Priyankar Kumar, Abhisek Das, Dattatreya Nayak and Pramod Shenoy are all students of Computer Science at Manipal University
currently in their second year. We are deeply interested in using our skills to solve real world problems and spend a considerable
amount of our time learning new technologies, building projects and participating in hackathons. We are budding entrepreneurs trying to make a difference by using our technical skills to solve real world problems.

Experience: Priyankar Kumar has interned as a front end developer. Abhisek Das currently interns at Webloom, a MUTBI incubated startup. We also work on chrome extensions together. Pramod Shenoy has published apps in the Google Play store. Dattatreya Nayak provides technical support during college festivals.

Risks and Challenges

  • Scalability: As the number of users increase, we would have to adapt our code to meet the challenges and buy more resources like servers. We would also have to hire more personnel to take care of the operations.
  • Marketing: We would have to effectively communicate the advantages of using our platform to business owners. We would have to also communicate to organizers the advantages of using our platform.
  • Expansion: Expanding into new cities will create challenges in the form of convincing business owners to use our platform, real estate and personnel.

Tentative Cost Breakup for our initial operations

  • Hosting and domain-> Rs. 3000
  • Interns to fasten development-> Rs.2000
  • Marketing on social media->Rs.4000

If you feel our idea helps solve a real problem and if you feel it's something that is going to fill a gap in the market, please fund us. We would be grateful for all the help and support. No contribution is small.

It seems like a really good idea, and it provides a platform for people who have the talent but lack connections and opportunity.Community vibes will provide many with opportunity to realize their dreams, just like I am helping them realise theirs'.
