Why Vibes?

Hi, We’re Vibemap…

We believe that in-person, social relationships are crucial to our well-being.

What if we told you that vibes can lead to unexpected sources of connection?

We each have an emotional life whose energy changes. We constantly navigate this changing energy or what we call personal “vibes.”

*Vibe (n.): a hidden vibration or sentiment that most people intuitively feel.

We all have vibes. As do cities, places, and events. (Also dogs, monkeys, and if we had to name-check only one other non-cat, vibey creature: Birds.)

But back to your vibes.

Our mission is to help bring people together in new ways and experience the magic of showing up in real life.

Powered by civic data, Vibemap connects you with where you want to be based on your vibe. We use vibes as a way to make finding things to do less daunting and more tailored to you, so you can create real-life relationships and achieve personal growth.

How does this work?

Our machine learning performs sentiment analysis on all our content, so we will deliver results that really match the vibe you search for.

Data mapping of word associations is a big part of what we do. We fed thousands of human vibes tied to events and places into our algorithm.

To make exploration of what’s going on in cities easy for you, we organized these vibes into seven (super fun) categories of vibe sets.

Our vibe sets offer quick entry into a wide spectrum of vibes.

Think of a scale. At one end is our highest energy vibe set – Buzzing. If you’re drawn to this vibe, Vibemap has places and events to recommend that are adventurous, spontaneous, and very social.

On the very opposite end of the vibe-set scale is Quiet Energy: It’s for when your mood is more introspective and calm. Vibemap’s recommendations will be about experiences that are cozy, comforting, and serene.

We like to think we all vibe along a spectrum. That on any given day you might be feeling Quiet Energy. Or wanting an artsy, scenic Dreamy vibe. Maybe you’re looking for experiences that are retro and Old School. Or you’re seeking inclusive events held In Solidarity with communities. Perhaps you’re desiring romantic settings suited for Togetherness. Or up for some rollicking fun outdoors for Playtime. Maybe you’re pumped up with wild energy and your vibe is turned all the way up to Buzzing!!

Just as the essence of a city moves and flows and changes, you are dynamic.

And no matter how you’re vibing at that moment, through Vibemap, you now have a space in which to find others on this shared journey.

Can vibes lead you to unexpected sources of in-person connection? Yes. And…

This is how we intend to make a difference.
