What we do:
CrowdCompass makes events, conferences, meetings, trade shows and conventions a lot more popular through the power of mobile.  In just four short years we’ve gone from an office of three to over 50 employees, 2,000 customer apps and 500,000 downloads, establishing us as one of the fastest-growing startups in the Silicon Forest.  Now we’re backed by Cvent, one of the world’s largest event management software companies and the #2 software job creator in the country, so we get the best of both worlds – the scrappiness and agility (and fun!) of a high-growth mobile startup with the upward mobility, strength and stability of a publicly-traded company.

We build beautiful software that helps event planners take their event experience to their users via our complex RoR apps, responsive mobile web, HTML5, and native apps.  Built on Ruby from day one, we’ve leverage its flexibility and scalability to allow for exponential growth over a very short period of time.
