LOS ANGELES--WESAWIT is a free mobile app and website that puts the user in the middle of the action – a live concert, music festival, or sporting event – from any location. Now on the App Store, Google Play and online, WESAWIT allows users to experience any live event through the eyes of the crowd.
“This is going to revolutionize the $24 billion event industry by giving people a front row seat to the most exciting events taking place globally,” said Thibault Mathieu, CEO and co-founder of WESAWIT, Inc. “Fans can attend concerts and sporting events in real-time from any location by simply engaging on their mobile devices.”
WESAWIT’s mission is to revolutionize the future of events by allowing users to share and follow events in real-time through the app on a mobile device or online. Using a proprietary algorithm that continuously scans the millions of media uploaded every day on the internet, the WESAWIT app offers live-streams of photos and videos taken by event-goers themselves. People can share experiences with friends and participate virtually in any event, such as a Lady Gaga concert or a Lakers Game, regardless of geographic location. In short, the WESAWIT platform provides a single destination for all visual content relating to a specific event.
WESAWIT is also working with artists, venues and promoters to help them take fan engagement to a new level. “We make it possible to instantly display fan-generated photos & videos live from any show. Additionally, we are building a 'white label' option for our partners,” added Morgan Rostagnat, President and co-founder. “We’re excited to collaborate with major venues in the Los Angeles area such as The Roxy Theatre and Troubadour.”
The LA-based company is mentored by serial entrepreneur Rob Emrich, founder/CEO of PaeDae. After a successful Beta launch at UCLA in February 2013, WESAWIT is now expanding across the US.
WESAWIT is a crowdsourced mobile app that aggregates and organizes photos and videos for events in real-time. For more information, visit wesawit.com. Follow us on Twitter @wesawitapp and like us on Facebook: facebook.com/wesawit.
