Sponto Gearing up to Awesomize Colleges starting with the ones around Awesome DC
June 7, 2011 Leave a comment
Sponto is a mobile party detection app for college students built by one of the coolest DC entrepreneur, Jamey Harvey who I know since Web 1.0 era. Up until last week Sponto was only available to students at the University of Maryland where it’s been burning up the campus.
I wish they were around when I was going to college, because essentially what it does is tell you where all the free food, booze and hot babes (hot dudes like me in your case ladies ;-)) are near you!
Their app has enabled The GWU (my Alma Mater) as well as American University, Georgetown, Howard, Catholic, UDC, Catholic, Trinity, Gallaudet and the Corcoran School of Art. If you’re a student at one of these schools you can register for Sponto now and start sharing parties and events.
If you’re a student at another school and you’re in DC, you can register and he says they’ll turn on your school. You need a .EDU email address to join and it works on Android, iPhone and the web.
Sponto is going to be going around to intern happy hours and showing the product to interns. Building off their UMD critical mass Sponto will start detecting big and small groups of students gathering in and around DC especially around free food, alcohol and attractive people.
Check it out and let us know what you think.
