Let us tell you how it all began with Plexis.
Our story begins in a college dorm room at Mount Saint Mary’s University in Maryland.
Zach Hurst was just like any other college student, grinding through classes during the week and hanging out with friends on the weekends.
Zach noticed a problem in his social life - one you might relate to.
He found coordinating events with friends to be an extremely cumbersome process.
Especially with unorganized group chats constantly blowing up his phone with messages like:
Zach noticed another problem: FOMO
Fear of missing out.
As a college student, the fear of missing out was one of his biggest fears and he wasn’t alone.
That's likely because current social media platforms are focused on likes and followers rather than bringing people together for real life interactions.
And don't even get us started on Facebook event notifications which get lost in the sea of political rants, targeted advertisements, and your cousin's baby shower pics on that platform.
So, Zach decided to do something with his idea for Plexis and invited some friends over to tell them about it.
Zach saw a need for a simple and clean way to stay connected with others in your network and see what’s going on around you before you miss out.
He made it his mission to pursue that idea after graduation with Plexis.
A couple years later, we made that vision a reality.
Plexis is now live and we look forward to all feedback and helping you stay connected like never before!
We want you to help us make this your go to social calendar app on your phone.

Together, you can be a part of putting the social back in social media!
