Tickitto was founded to solve the complex supply problems by creating Open Ticketing design principles, similar to those that have revolutionized consumer banking. The company has designed a way for platforms to incorporate the supply of ticketed events to their customers at 1% of the effort it would traditionally take. The promise of being able to buy tickets to events from brands we trust is made real in this way.
