Startup PromSocial launches app to disrupt the prom industry and revolutionize the way teens share their prom experience.
Any graduating high school student would tell you that prom is one of the best, if not the Best Night of High School. Some American parents think they are overrated and student didn’t go to theirs. However, American prom industry is estimated to be valued at about $4 billion or more, according to theWeek. According to government National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), about 3.6 million students are expected to graduate from high school in 2017–18, including 3.3 million students from public high schools and 0.3 million students from private high schools. American families spend an average of $919 on prom. Even with the rising cost of prom, there is very little to no innovation in the prom industry. Startup PromSocial is about to change all that.
The company announced today it has launched a moble app to disrupt the prom industry and revolutionize the way teens plan, organize and share their prom experience.
