Project Title: Make a Bud Get a Bud
Client or Class Name: Syracuse University, The Newhouse School - https://newhouse.syr.edu/
People don’t socialize face-to-face as much as they used to, especially at bars. It’s hard for them to meet people when they’re stuck on their phones. The Make a Bud Get a Bud App connects people at bars that share similar interests. If they meet up with their match and are able to chat for 10 minutes without using their phones, they receive a buy one get one free Budweiser. The app pulls people away from their phones and brings them together over a beer. This way, bar-goers can easily meet new people and socialize when they go out.
