We started SeatGeek nearly five years ago with the goal of helping people enjoy more live entertainment by building great software.
Our goal hasn’t changed, but its scope has. We’ve gone from a team of two to a team of forty. From the desktop web to iOS, Android and mobile web. And from a handful of active users (hi Mom!) to millions.
We think we’re onto something big. And we’ve decided to partner with some exceptional folks to get SeatGeek moving even faster. This past week we closed a $35M Series B round led by Accel Partners, alongside Causeway Media Partners, Mousse Partners, and a number of other great investors (full list here).
From going hoarse screaming for your favorite team, to dancing along with your favorite band, live entertainment is a deeply personal, aesthetic experience. We think the software that enables those moments should be too. We are a technology company. Everyone at SeatGeek is driven to create something elegant, intuitive and useful. This financing gives us one of the tools we need to do that more quickly and for more people than ever before.
The last five years have been a blast. The next five will be even better. We’re going to remain focused on building amazing software that helps people have fun. And we’re excited to partner with Accel and others to help us make it happen.
