Most of us are connecting with one another over Zoom or Skype for meetings or weekly check-ins with friends and family. Teleconferencing becomes mundane and a daily routine. 

However, people also crave to celebrate big milestones in their lives and using the same platform for work meetings diminishes the specialness of traditions. Festinha is bringing back that spark, creating programming and excitement around virtual celebrations.

What is the need are you focusing on?

As humans are social creatures, we seek out connections with one another. Social distancing regulations have forced us to connect digitally, often on teleconferencing platforms (i.e. Zoom). However, time still goes on and so do traditions, birthdays, and holidays. Pre-COVID, these would be large-scale celebrations with friends and family and we still crave such experiences. This solution addresses the need for companionship and celebration in this tough period.

What is the best example of business adaption you’ve seen in response to COVID-19?

Festinha enables people to throw different forms of online parties depending on their budget and preferred theme. Festinha then helps invite all guests and acts as MC.
