“By day the hottest marketplace startups. By night, even hotter.”
A few months ago, Thumbtack moved into an awesome renovated warehouse space in SOMA. We’ve been wanting to show off our new office as well as get to know more of the startups here in SOMA, so together with Vayable.com we’ve put together an amazing party.
The party — Night Market — will feature 16 of the hottest marketplace startups, including marketplaces for accommodations (Airbnb.com), cars (GetAround.com), labor-on-demand (Crowdflower.com), networking (BranchOut.com), and even collectibles (Crave.com).
Each startup will demo their product in a creative way at the party: a bouncy castle, Asian cocktails, Tesla rides, red lanterns, Kung Fu, a photo booth, gongs, a waffle truck, clothing swaps, and round-the-world twister. And there will be some awesome surprises. (One involves a sword. One involves fire.)
The party is this Wednesday, June 1, 2011 and starts at sundown (8pm) at our new Thumbtack.com HQ (454 Natoma St, SOMA).
All 300 tickets are sold out, but the waitlist can be joined at Eventbrite.
Members of the press are invited to join a half hour early (7:30pm) for pre-party drinks and interviews with the founders of the startups.
See our press release for the full list of startups and all the details of the party.
POST-PARTY UPDATE: What an awesome party! We had incredible turnout: ~400 attendees throughout the night. Here are some pictures and reviews of the party. Make sure to check out the Tesla and fire dancing photos. Thanks for coming out!
