Renaud Visage, Kevin and Julia Hartz, Eventbrite
Eventbrite is a self-service ticketing platform that people use to create events, sell tickets and manage registrations for events of all types and sizes.
Eventbrite has processed 200 million tickets for organizers in almost 200 countries. Nearly 100,000 organizers around the world use Eventbrite each month to manage, promote and sell tickets and registrations to all types of events — from small classes, book signings and networking gatherings, to concerts, festivals and conventions for tens of thousands of attendees.
The events platform makes it easy for anyone to discover events via their website or mobile app, and easily share events with friends. In this way, Eventbrite brings communities together by encouraging people to connect through live experiences.
Initially, Eventbrite's concept was pitched on selling tickets through internet search engines but the start-up boomed in the wake of the social media explosion of the mid-2000s. The evolution of mobile phones and the elimination of the requirement of paper tickets also provided a boost.
Eventbrite's investors include DAG Ventures, Sequoia Capital, T. Rowe Price, Tenaya Capital and Tiger Global.
