Glasgow University boasts a diverse range of talented and proactive students, and two entrepreneurial Business & Management students are definitely at the forefront of the cavalcade. Renata Pilikinaite and Tadas Labudis have created a website which aims to collect information about upcoming events and present them with coherence and clarity.
The website, eventhread.com, gathers information from events scattered across the Internet and congregates them into one coherent, slick, and easy to use website, an online directory of where-to-go and what-to-see. The Alpha version is already live and is well into the swing of streamlining all the goings-on across the UK’s major cities, and the Beta version and iPhone App look ready to be available by mid-January. What Eventhread does is it provides all the necessary information for upcoming events, including directions through a map, links for purchasing tickets, and the option for refining searches according to event type, price, location, and date. This ability for personalized, individual searches of events is definitely rooted in the notions of no-nonsense, quick and easy web browsing, and it won’t only benefit the person browsing the site but also could lead to better exposure for events, particularly if a Facebook invitation somehow has eluded you.
