YPlan: Uncover The Best Events Everyday
Need to figure out what you want to do today or later this week? Have you given YPlan a try? This London startup launched in 2012 and has since expanded to New York (in 2013) and San Francisco (in 2014). Its event discovery service, which competes with WillCall, Sosh, and others, is hoping to build a $1 billion business that aggregates happenings from Eventbrite, Ticketmaster, Google, Timeout, and others.
Company cofounder Rytis Vitkauskas told VentureBeat’s Paul Sawers that YPlan is planning to launch “in bunches of cities at the same time, and it will be in partnership with other brands and large distribution partners that will help us get up to speed in terms of visibility.”
Vitkauskas suggested that YPlan may be looking at other verticals, including perhaps meals. Whatever its next move, the company is focused on areas that can help it reach that billion-dollar mark.
