mypunchbowl logoThe party and event planning startup, MyPunchBowl, announced today that they received a seed round of funding lead by Intel Capital with participation from eCoast Angels. Additional investors include angel investors in Silicon Valley and Boston. The terms of the financing were not disclosed.

MyPunchBowl was launched in Janurary 2007 after the founders became frustrated with the available methods for planning an event or party. They set out to create a better user experience. I assume they are referring to the aging Evite service. Frankly, I think Evite has a horrid user experience. Evite was acquired in 2001 by InterActiveCorp who also owns Ask Jeeves, Citysearch, CollegeHumor, Expedia, Hotels.com, HotWire, HSN, Lending Tree, Match.com, and TicketMaster. Since then, little has been done to improve Evite which has opened the doors to competitors.

I wish MyPunchBowl the best of luck! I hate having to respond to evites and I hope that more of my friends start using competing services like this one. Other similar services include Socializer and Planypus. Does anyone have experience using either of these companies? If so, how do you like them compared to Evite?
