Technology should make our lives simpler, and for Tiqets that is certainly the case. Tiqets is committed to building technology that makes it easier to explore, book and enjoy culture and entertainment. Providing travelers with mobile tickets and hassle-free access to top venues in cities around the world.
Rapid growth leads to expansion
Tiqets grew more than 3,500% in 2015, operating in European hotspots like Barcelona, Paris, Rome, London and Amsterdam. These results confirmed that easy-to-use mobile ticketing meets a real demand for both travelers and venues.
“We’re growing rapidly, because there’s a proven demand for the mobile entrance and instant tickets we offer.” CEO Luuc Elzinga said. “It’s our mission to make culture more accessible. We’re here to help travelers get into the places they want to visit. So we’ll keep on adding new cities and new venues, improving our technology, and creating unique content.”
Later this month Tiqets is moving into New York and Prague. Other cities, including Dubai, Berlin and Copenhagen, will be added before the summer holidays.
Investment to fuel growth
The rapid growth has attracted the attention of investors, and Tiqets secured a $4 million Series A financing round from a group of investors led by Capital Mills.
“Tiqets has a unique view on mobile ticketing and has shown impressive results over the last years. We’re excited to be a part of its growth”, said Erwin van der Veen, partner at Capital Mills. “Tiqets fits perfectly in our investment strategy. Our investment – together with Investion and others – will help Tiqets to scale up even faster.”
“This successful financing round is a vote of confidence. It gives us the resources we need to help even more travelers make the most out of their leisure time, and to offer more venues a way to increase visitors,” said co-founder and Business Development Manager Maarten Raaijmakers.
