Trust & Safety - Scoot

A 5 step verification process to make sure you attend fun, creep free parties

Now that we all are on the safe page, let us show you how we verify people.

First off, yes, we do put you in a stranger's room to party with 15 other strangers and this is the stuff of nightmares for a typical Indian mom. We've done 130+ parties till now, having helped more than 2500 strangers in un-strangering across more than 60 homes - all without a single mishap.

We use a 5-step process to verify/screen people

While you break out of your comfort zone and begin your Scoot adventure we want you to know this homie has got your covered. How?

Algo
Think of this as the security guy at a bar - just that it doesn't have muscles and uses data to cross-verify the information you provide & churns out anybody who is part of any criminal list. It also does social profiling to not let anybody with a fake profile in. Also, it's a badass nerd, just saying.

Call
Once our algo clears you, we give you a quick verification call to make sure you're a genuine hooman being & a fit for our parties. They are generally conversational, sometimes funny and mostly awkward (we're learning). You're cleared to book any event you want after this verification.

Hosts
The hosts, who're good people like you and us, also have the power to approve/decline interests of the people who want to join their party by manually going through their profiles. You receive the exact address only after you get accepted.

At the Party
You'll find somebody from our team present at all the parties (expect some day time parties). Also, you'll be amongst other verified members in a social setting. The mathematical probability of all of them being creeps is next to none. That makes it safer than using carpool or staying at someone's place via a website that rhymes with ChairBnB.

Reviews/Feedback
We also have ratings & reviews as a feedback loop to churn out low-rated users and are very quick to ban someone that comes under doubt.

FAQs

What is Scoot and its concept?

Scoot is the Airbnb for home hosted events. It's a cool and great way to meet strangers who are your kinda crazy via house parties based on different themes.

How does it work?

You can either attend or host a Scoot Houseparty. All events take place at someone's place where a bunch of cool and genuine strangers gather to know each other and chill out. You can make new friends, network for business, learn a new craft from someone, help someone in an endeavour or even find your next coffee partner. Also, you save money by attending and you make money by hosting a Scoot Houseparty at your place.

How can I be a part of Scoot events?

It's simple, for now you just have to fill up this quick 10 second form - goo.gl/5ddoKQ

Once you fill this up, you'll be a part of our event notification list and will receive notification and invites of upcoming events. You can also refer to our facebook page to know which events are coming up.

A pet shop may be the most convenient way to buy a dog. Buying a dog from a private owner allows you to assess the pedigree and upbringing of your dog before choosing to take it home. Lastly, finding your dog from a shelter, helps give a good home to a dog who may not find one so readily.

Is it safe to attend a Scoot party at someone's house, specially for females?

Yes, it's totally safe. All Scoot guests are properly screened and we at Scoot hate creeps. Moreover, it's always a social setting, so a bunch of people are always present around you. It's safer than traveling in a Uber or staying at a AirBnb. For reviews by the guests, you can refer to our facebook page.

How do you screen people?

Our screening goal is simple - we don't want to let creeps in. So, our screening is a mix of checking the social, work and educational profile of our attendees. Moreover, someone from the team always talks to the guest before they attend the party to confirm.

What can I expect at a typical Scoot Houseparty?

All Scoot house parties are different from each other, and that's the beauty of the concept. We've had gaming parties, barbeque parties, bonfire jamming sessions, masquerade ball, wine & salsa, Game of Thrones and a whole bunch of different parties. The common things you can expect are good music, a variety of conversations, games and a cool bunch of strangers.

I filled the form but haven't received any invite, why is that so?

We've received a great response since its launch and we have a long list of guests waiting to attend a Scoot Houseparty. But, because of various constraints, we're doing enough events to cater everyone and that is the prime reason of you not getting an invite. However, we're launching our web platform in February where you'll be able to select the event you want to attend and send your interest directly to the host. This will enable us to have multiple events and cater to everyone. Please bear with us till then.
