Chris Archer-brown commented:
"The Plug and Play experience has been amazing for Tickitto. The introductions we've received have created some super partnership opportunities both in the short and medium-term. To have come out of the programme with this award is the icing on the cake. It's an important validation that we're on the right track that re-assures our partners that we're ready and able to execute on their behalf."
Director of the Plug and Play Travel program, Amir Amidi, said:
"Dana and her team shined during our Batch 12 travel accelerator program. Their professionalism, entrepreneurial spirit and traction from our corporate partners was unprecedented. We look forward to supporting Tickitto in the future and wish Dana and the team all the best."
What this means for you
Tickitto was founded to solve the complex supply problems by creating Open Ticketing design principles, similar to those that have revolutionized consumer banking. We have designed a way for consumer brands 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 they trust is made real in this way.
