Product/Service Summary

Scoot is the Airbnb for home-hosted events. We are a trusted community marketplace (a digital platform) that helps people list, discover and book private, exclusively tailored home-hosted events.

A user can host his/ her own event (at home, e.g. wine tasting, rooftop bonfire, backyard barbecue, movie night, gaming brunch, house party etc.) and accept guests to attend (only verified members on the platform).

As a host, you earn by charging folks for the event while guests can actually save money (as compared to going out - restaurant/ pub/ bar etc.) while making new social and/ or professional connections in the comfort of their homes.
