Last week, SOSH hosted a private “Campfire Social” full of cocktails served by none other than Canon and food by Skillet at a secret location which was later discovered to be at Melrose Market Studios in Capitol Hill. The night ended with an amazing live performance by Allen Stone.
So… what is Sosh?
Sosh is a mobile app that uses a mix of technology and human curation to unearth, structure, and recommend the most amazing local events and activities. Acting as a personalized concierge, Sosh tailors recommendations to each member’s unique interests and habits, as well as a host of other factors, including the weather outside, the time of day, a user’s location, and more.
Sosh is currently available in San Francisco, New York City, and as of last month: Seattle… coming soon (Chicago, Boston, LA).
What sets Sosh apart is that it doesn’t simply give its members a directory of local venues. Instead, it curates the city’s best events and activities, from a pasta-making class with a famous chef to cocktails at a new speakeasy, a night hike up Mount Si, or the perfect itinerary for a first date.
Sosh was founded by former Google employees and has raised a total of $15 million from Instagram co-founder, Mike Krieger, Sequoia Capital, Khosla Ventures, and other notable investors. Sosh has previously launched its service in San Francisco and New York City, where its popularity has grown rapidly. In San Francisco, for example, nearly one out of every 6 adults is a Sosh member.
