PSFK tests outs the Zokos crowdfunding event model.

Brooklyn based start up, Zokos, helps party hosts collaboratively fund and plan social events. The funding model allows party hosts to easily collect funds the day before an event, enabling a smooth transition from planning to party without an awkward exchange of cash.  Similar to Kickstarter, parties added to the site are only successfully funded when the selected goal is reached. By getting guests involved early on in funding parties, Zokos is helping to simplify the financial and organization hurdle for party planners, allowing them to can spend more time spreading the word, decorating or preparing a feast.
