"EventStir wants to answer the question that many event hosts and venue owners ask themselves each day – will enough people attend my event? "

EventStir, a Washington D.C based startup run by cofounders Sajad Ghanizada and Andrew Mason has been quickly gaining traction within the event technology industry. Since their meta-launch in March – where the founders used their product to fund their launch event –the platform has had over 200 events created ranging from private parties such as vacation rentals to larger public events like music festivals and fundraisers.

With the launch of enterprise access, EventStir will allow businesses to pay a low monthly fee to run their own crowd-funded events.

“EventStir presents a fantastic alternative to group buying services like Groupon where merchants are asked to part with 60% off retail prices,” says ArtJamz owner Michael Clements, “We’re going to teach cool, quirky and creative classes at ArtJamz Academy next year because of EventStir.”

“We realized that while selling tickets is great, the limiting factor in judging turnout was always a lack of input from the audience during the planning process,” says Ghanizada. By polling invitees first through a social web page, EventStir allows organizers to test out their event ideas, make appropriate changes, and then charge their attendees once they know the event is profitable.

“It’s a win for attendees since they show up to events they actually care about and a win for event organizers because they can test out larger than life event ideas at no risk,” continues Mason.
