Twickets, the face value ticket reseller has exceeded its target of £700,000 in only 32 days on equity crowdfunding platform Seedrs being just a hairs breadth short of the £900,000 milestone as we go to press.
Despite breaching the funding target, the campaign will remain open for a few more weeks. There’s been particularly high levels of interest following the news that Twickets will act as both Adele and Crystal Palace’s official ticket reseller, and that it has signed deals to integrate with music promoter Kilimanjaro’s online purchase hub Myticket.co.uk and national ticket agency Gigantic.
Twickets’ founder Richard Davies said: “Thank you to everyone who has given their support to Twickets, helping us to achieve our target much faster than expected. People evidently believe in stopping fans being ripped off and saving them money that can in turn flow back into the entertainment and sports industries. We look forward to expanding to Australia, Spain and New York next year”.
Founded in 2015, Twickets’ enables fans who can no longer attend events to resell their tickets at face value, an important alternative to the for-profit secondary marketplaces.
