MyCityRocks is a Web site that combines social networking elements with a ticket exchange and online invites to allow users to bring friends together for cultural, community, music and sporting events. Various cities throughout the world have localized MyCityRocks pages.
Its ticket exchange helps users buy and sell tickets to sold-out events, and the site reinvests a portion of its proceeds to various charitable causes.
The site was recently named one of the top ten most promising IT and Web 2.0 companies at the 6th Annual Rice Alliance for Technology & Entrepreneurship I.T. and Web 2.0 Venture Forum.
