St. Louis’ Ramped Media builds community-based web products. Founded in February, 2006, their first project is IMThere, a user-driven events site. Their competitors include Renkoo, Socializr, MyPunchBowl, and MadeIt.
|Launch Date||January 1, 2008|
ImThere is a user generated play on event sites. As opposed to organizing a typical gathering among friends, like eVite facilitates, users instead post public events, concerts, and release parties. Other users can then upload pictures and comments, creating localized communities of users with similar interests. ImThere provides an easy way to browse by person, venue, and artists, and search events by popularity and region.
They offer an especially interesting feature in letting users upload pictures from their mobile phone, potentially during the event itself.
