Company Launches

Hi everyone! Weโ€™re Anna and Amy, sisters and co-founders of Nowadays.

From left to right:

Anna: Software engineer from MIT, with PM & SWE experiences at DoorDash, Amazon, and Datadog. Organized events for 1300+ students as class president at MIT.

Amy: 7+ years in strategy & operations roles at Google, Meta, and McKinsey. Organized events for 2000+ students as class president at Johns Hopkins.

๐Ÿงจ The Problem

Corporate event planners are bombarded with endless calls and emails while planning events. Stressing over tight schedules, planners are paying for full-time assistants or tools that cost them $100,000+ a year.

What if we could transform this time-consuming and expensive process, making it not just simple, but enjoyable and efficient?

๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ The Solution

Meet Nowadays, the first AI co-pilot for event planning. Recover hours lost to manual, repetitive tasks, and spend time focusing on what really matters.

Hereโ€™s how it works: Share event details, and we'll automatically reach out to venues and vendors, manage emails and calls, and stay within budget.

Want a venue with an onsite golf course? Done โœ…

Activities within walking distance? Booked โœ…

Keeping your costs under a certain budget? You got it โœ…

But thatโ€™s not all. Our AI doesn't just offer a one-size-fits-all approach. It adapts to unique tastes and needs, providing a truly personalized event planning experience.

We're not just offering a tool; we're offering a smarter way to celebrate, connect, and create unforgettable moments.

๐Ÿ‘‹ Ask: How you can help

  1. Know anyone planning corporate events (e.g. retreats, happy hours, holiday parties)? Weโ€™d love to speak to any event planners, office managers, or executive assistants about their day-to-day experiences. Send any leads to founders@getnowadays.com. ๐Ÿ™
  2. Follow along on our journey here!
