Finding something to do with my kids over the weekend is a personal pain of mine. It require me to go through many websites ( local news paper, blogs, social media, city website, google!) to find a suitable public local event (free or for fee). And in many cases, I know about those events after the fact. So I am thinking to start a service that will aggregate all events in one location. Since I am searching this info for a personal use, I can share the list in a specific format with anyone who might be interested.
I can start with a simple Instagram page as MVP then expand it to a portal (and even app eventually) for wider reach.
And since the goal is to make money out of this, after the initial period of testing the market, I can get the event host to market their events through my business for specific fee.
The key here is to make it local but it can be expanded horizontally across cities/states while keeping each one of them independent.
I am aware that there are websites for this kind of listing but most of them are passive in nature (even owner have to list their event) while this one is mainly active (I/we search for local public events and list them on behalf of the host).
I would like to know your thoughts about the following:
1- your thoughts in general.
2- can this become a viable business?
3- are you aware of website that does the something similar?
