Event planning resource Venuetastic has launched a 2.0 version that makes it easier than ever for event coordinators to scout and book the perfect venue. The site lists over 5,000 hand-picked event spaces in six cities across the US and targets everyone from professional event coordinators throwing large-scale events to Moms searching for a birthday party spot.

Venuetastic was the first ever female-founded company to be backed by prestigious startup incubator Y Combinator. The redesign offers enhanced tools to help users find their ideal venue. The site now includes maps, a greater emphasis on photos, more search parameters, and improved favorite and compare functions. Venue information is now organized in a clearer way, and it is easier to contact about booking. Venuetastic also features integration with Eventbrite to help with other aspects of the party-planning process.

The company was founded in 2010 by Helen Belogolova and Christine Yen. It is based in Los Angeles, California and currently has 11 employees.
