“We needed to figure out how to take all these really long processes and make them extremely simple and quick to the user so they can plan and customize an event 100 times more efficiently and go from A to Z without any prior event-planning knowledge,” Rubin said.

 

Rubin said she hopes that Wekudo will one day become the go-to website for everyone’s event planning needs.

 

“The ultimate end goal is to make a scalable product that people really love using,” she said.

 

Wekudo has worked with companies to coordinate unique and engaging office experiences such as in-office smoothie bars, craft beer tastings, and in-office arcades.

Wekudo breaks the event planning process down for users into three steps.

2. Customize the details to your needs and preferences

 

3. Watch Wekudo plan and organize the event
