Letsqube an app that enables groups of friends to easily collect and pool money towards communal events, gatherings, and purchases.

The project combines age-old Ethiopian cultural traditions with modern behavioral economics in order to make it easier for people to plan and commit to spending time together. Friends use Letsqube to schedule an occasion to get together, and to contribute to a shared budget. The app builds anticipation for the event through reminders and updates, emphasizing what people will miss if they skip an event they’ve committed to.
