Who's That founders, Sam Davidson and Brian Sachetta joined us at our MITX Up event in 2016 at the InnoLoft. The two college friends launched the app (since rebranded as "Cheers") in 2014 with the goal of connecting groups of friends at bars around Boston. Cheers enables people to find other groups of friends going out in your city and then meet up with them at a participating bar to get a free first round of drinks.
Co-founder and CEO Sam Davidson said his experience at MITX Up "was absolutely amazing," and "hands down the best, most helpful experience we've had." Originally launched on nine college campuses, the app has grown 400 percent since October 2015 (in part due to a partnership with Fireball Whiskey). Today, Cheers has over 30 partner venues in the Boston area, including the Hawthorne, Scholars, Tavern Road, Tiger Mama, and Merchant, and has recently announced another partnership with Absolut Elyx.
