At More Human we’re connecting humanity, with a platform that elevates the world’s events.
Group activity organisers in the arts, leisure, recreation & entertainment industries have been the hardest hit by COVID-19 restrictions. Our events platform helps social groups, clubs and societies to recover from the impact of the pandemic, generating more revenue and putting more high-quality events out into the world to bring people together more often.
Our platform will upgrade anyone into a successful event organiser and make it easy to deliver a premium social experience for attendees and members. It will offer high-quality event templates designed by premium content partners and make creating from scratch a cinch with drag-and-drop functionality. And we’ll be meeting attendees and organisers where they feel comfortable with technology by integrating with the platforms and tools they’re already using.
Powered by real social connections and real get-togethers, the next generation of social network brings about a More Human world. More organisers, more invitations, more connections and greater access to high quality events.
More Human was co-founded in 2020 by Emma Lawton (events blogger, ex Creative Director, accessibility champion, living with Parkinson’s), Mel Nurse (Systems Engineer, founder of a corporate ventures team) and Duncan Lindsey (built a tech community from scratch, ex Strategy Consultant and startup CTO) We came together over our shared interest in reducing loneliness and a common belief that technology won’t stop a person from feeling isolated, only a real human has that power.
