Company Summary

StreetPotato.com is an informational database of where different kinds of people go at night, with the aim of helping strangers find each other out in the world: (1) fundamentally, it shows you the favorite venues of people who like what you like; (2) in doing so, it guides likeminded people to the same ones on the same nights, growing crowds of compatible strangers.
