🚀 Partiful: Lowkey planning for highkey parties
Party planning made fun and easy
Everyone loves a good party – but planning one? That can be difficult. This week’s startup Partiful is the all in one party planning tool for Gen-Zers.
⚾ The Elevator Pitch
Planning a party doesn’t have to be stressful. Yet it can be a whole process sending out RSVPs, collecting payments, and getting an accurate headcount. So why should a glamorous party be pooped on by unglamorious planning?
Partiful is a new party planning service that is fun, mobile-friendly, and easy to use. And in the past two years, it has blown up among Gen-Zers at colleges and living in big cities.

🔍 Why we like it
🙅 Gen-Z and Facebook Events just don’t mix
For the past twenty years, Eventbrite has been the go-to party planning platform. But its use case tends to be formalized organizations, the UI is a bit outdated, and the truth is – the younger generation tends to stray away from it. Likewise, no one wants to or expects to receive a Facebook event invitation nowadays. Partiful is specifically catered towards a fast growing demographics of partiers (and consumers) – Gen-Z.
🎉 Fit the vibe whether it’s a massive rager or a lowkey get-together
Aesthetics matter when it comes to organizing and hosting events. And Partiful nails the aesthetic that so many people care about. Whether it’s a birthday bash, baby shower, or a night out, Partiful has a well-curated gallery of themes to pick from.
🤑 Collect $$$, share photos, text blast updates all in one
No longer are the days of chasing down friends to chip in, begging to drop pics in the shared album, or sending individual text reminders. Partiful streamlines the process and removes the pain points that so many people experience during planning. Less time planning ➡️ more time partying.
That's a pretty cool idea! I wonder how many event planners would use this.
