Find it hard to meet people or make real connections in the city? Busy schedules, tight circles, same routines or maybe you have just moved to the city? Viibe is a social club of events and activities that aims to create an atmosphere for like-minded people who want to meet, get involved or explore cool local spots in the city of London. We’re tired of the existing social apps…It’s all about interacting in person. Our ethos is to encourage organic connections in person, bringing people together over shared interests regardless of intentions, relationship status or identity. We believe this takes the pressure away, to just make the most of the opportunities of being in a social setting. Our vision is to make meeting and engaging with people a lot easier. As we grow our Viibe community, we plan to launch an app that flips the way we meet people through apps on its head. We want to redefine how people meet digitally to facilitate meeting organically in person as it should.

What we'll deliver:

  • Host 2-4 events/activities per month
  • LET'S VIIBE Launch Event - collaborate with artists, musicians, chefs
  • Development of Viibe social networking app

Why it's a great idea:

It can be very lonely in the city and difficult to form genuine connections. Viibe can make a social impact on mental health and wellbeing by encouraging interactions in person, creating excitement and a sense of community and belonging. Viibe can also benefit businesses through collaborations and partnerships by creating buzz in local areas and bringing in new customers through our socials and creative marketing. It also gives a chance for people to explore new places in London.

Steps to get it done:

  • Run our first social - completed !
  • Create a website and social media - completed !
  • Gain traction and grow our followers (at least 200 by 2023)
  • Build strong brand partnerships to host bigger social events of 25-50 people
  • Work with an app developer in 2023
  • Host bigger community group activities

As part of my crowdfunding project, I would like to plan a larger event party. The goal of this is to announce the app for beta users, encourage people to sign up and spreading the word on the social club and community. This would involve hiring a space one evening, planning a few social games and questions for people to mix and break the ice, enjoy good music, food and company to get a feel of what Viibe is about. The event would be filmed and photographed, which can also be used for further promotion and fundraising.
