Company Description
Emparty is a fast-growing, early-stage startup in Palo Alto, CA, that is making the process of planning parties and events (small corporate events, birthdays, graduations, showers, holiday parties, etc.) easier, faster, and a lot more fun. It's basically a marketplace for venues and vendors, with some twists.

The company was founded in February 2018 by former leaders from Avis, eBay, and Oak Labs. We just closed our first round of funding from two top-tier investors, and we already have a long and growing list of customers lined up to use the service. (For real. We're not kidding. The pressure is on.)
