Crowdsourced events-interest project Togather is shutting down

The event demand-generation startup, which was incubated within the Dumbo-based design agency Huge, has closed down, and is pointing to signs of internal conflict.

In an email Monday morning, Togather founder Andrew Kessler wrote that his company is shutting down. We covered the crowdsourced events prep startup last December.

In an email announcement Kessler wrote:

I am … saddened to report that, as we work to extract ourselves from our relationship with the IPG/Huge Labs incubator, our services will be suspended. Unfortunately, we encountered obstacles that prevent us from doing any work at this time—most notably being locked out of our web servers and notice that our incubator will dissolve the Togather entity—making it impossible to continue operations.

IPG is the corporate parent of Huge, and the chief investor in Togather. Huge declined to comment for this story. A Togather contact did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
