SURKUS is a CrowdCasting platform that pays people to experience local venues and events.
SURKUS works similar to a movie casting: through an easy-to-use app, the platform matches people, or SURKUSgoers, with events based on their profile and preferences.
Using a unique proprietary algorithm which collects relevant data from each SURKUSgoer, the system aggregates content from all social media feeds. Influencers are identified, qualified, and recruited (cast).
Businesses can use SURKUS to incentivize the perfect crowd to attend by minimizing traditional advertising and promotional costs. Through SURKUS, businesses are connected with their ideal crowds, and users get to attend events at must-see venues.
