Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club to Host Startup Party

For a Singaporean social network.
40 40 Jay Zs 40/40 Club to Host Startup Party

40/40 Club.

YuuZoo is a new mobile social network that’s driving hard into India, China, South East Asia, the Middle East and Africa, where mobile Internet is much more common than home Internet—so we’re not sure why the startup is partnering with rapper Maino for a fabulous social media party tomorrow at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club on West 25th St.

This morning Betabeat received a press release from YuuZoo, a social network that looks like Google+, works like Ning and hopes to scoop up artists and brands. Judging by the public feed, the site appears woefully far away from its goal of overtaking Facebook.

Maino will be celebrating the launch of his YuuZoo page, yuuzoo.com/maino, at the club tomorrow. We assume there will be plenty of bubbly.
