Meet the people behind TicketCo
Learn more about TicketCo, our mission, our investor relations, and our people.
TicketCo is all about joy, excitement and togetherness. We are a vital part of the world’s greatest industry – the event industry – and our vision is to make a distinct difference in this industry. We dream of a future where everything event organisers need is only one click away, and we are determined to create this future.
By doing so, we are also building the world’s greatest ticketing company.
What we are creating is a digital ticketing assistant. Through machine learning and predictive analytics, we will use data to enable organisers to make better decisions. This will be the biggest disruption of our industry since the first computer tickets were introduced in America in the late sixties, and it will place TicketCo in the front seat of our industry for the next decades.
Through innovative and sustainable products and services, TicketCo’s goal is to offer solutions our customers love. By doing so, we are building a company with sustainable growth and great future prospects for every stakeholder.
Our mission is to become the world’s first digital ticketing assistant, and to outplay any competition.
While building our digital ticketing assistant, we are focusing on humble spending, sustainable growth and world class customer satisfaction. The road towards the digital ticketing assistant needs a rock solid foundation, where all assets within the company are aligned and no funds are wasted.
We are here to serve our customers, be a great place to work and grow for our employees, and to build values for our investors. It’s that simple.
