Spur

Company Overview

Spur is a social network website co-founded by three Harvard students Weijia Huang, Charlotte Solmssen, and Kieran. The website allows its users to broadcast their future activities to their friends, family, co-workers and communities via SMS or email. It aims to help people to connect with their existing friends by creating the framework for them to meet in real world. Spur also provides a platform, which serves as a bulletin board for people to see friends’ intended activities.

With the development of the Internet there have been increasing concerns about people spending more and more time in virtual networks thus losing ground in real life social connections and friendships. The goal of Spur is to efficiently streamline the planning of meet-ups and hang outs and thus help develop deeper relationships.

Mission:

Help individuals locate and connect with nearby friends instantly and in person.
