In a move to promote more social events, Meetup today announced "Meetup Everywhere" - a new portal for organizations to sponsor and initiate worldwide meetups. Within hours of launching, several sponsored meet ups from Seth Godin, Groupon, and others had worldwide meet up movements.
We happen to meet with Scott Heiferman, CEO of Meetup yesterday at TechCrunch to talk about the demand for social events...and venues. According to Scott Heiferman, there are nearly 50K Meetups each week! Youzzaa...that's a lot of get togethers!
Congrats, Scott & Meetup on the launch!
