SeatGeek Raises從TCV、Accela和其他公司獲得6200萬美元的融資

SeatGeek宣佈他們已經在C輪融資計畫募集了6200萬美元資金。公司目前總共已經募集了1.03億美元。SeatGeek是專門以移動裝置為導向的票務服務,以應用程式進行票券銷售及二手票券轉售業務。此以手機為主的更廣大的交易空間目前相當炙手可熱,投資者也都對此給予正面回應。該公司拒絕黃牛票的政策是非常明確的,而SeatGeek也希望能為許多主要的表演場館、推廣商及其他想卡進這個位置的人提供票務服務。

這一輪的融資計劃是由Technology Crossover Ventures主導,而Accel、Causeway Partners和Mousse Partners也都再次加入。Technology Crossover Ventures的合夥人Daniel O’Keefe將會進入SeatGeek的董事會。加入C輪融資的還有QueensBridge Venture Partners,這是傳奇的饒舌歌手Nas所推動的創投公司。

SeatGeek表示他們將利用這筆錢擴大在北美地區的市場,同時也計畫在今年年底前增加聘用46名員工;該公司目前擁有64名員工。

SeatGeek has announced that they’ve raised $62 million in Series C funding. The company has now raised a total of $103 million.

The company specializes in mobile-centric ticketing, with app-based solutions for primary and secondary sellers.  The broader, mobile-based transactional space, is oh-so-hot right now, and investors are responding.  The company shuns scalpers, and is quite explicit on that note.  In the end, SeatGeek wants to power ticketing for lots of powerful venues, promoters, and others trying to put butts-in-seats.

This round of funding was led by Technology Crossover Ventures. Returning investors include Accel, Causeway Partners, and Mousse Partners. Technology Crossover Ventures General Partner Daniel O’Keefe will join SeatGeek’s board.

Also participating in the Series C is QueensBridge Venture Partners, the investment vehicle driven by legendary rapper Nas.

SeatGeek says they will use the money to expand marketing in North America. They also plan on hiring 46 new employees by the end of the year.

The company currently has 64 employees.
