Eventbrite is an online ticketing service that allows event organizers to plan, set up ticket sales, and promote events. Users can also publish their events on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking tools directly from the site’s interface. Eventbrite offers a myriad of online event management services for its users. It enables them to discover popular events; get event recommendations and information; register for and purchase tickets to events; store debit and credit cards for fast, efficient purchasing; view event details such as maps and directions; share events with friends; and get into events with smartphones that require no paper tickets. Event organizers are able to look up and check in their event attendees off a guest list; validate ticket barcodes by using phone cameras; and view live sales and event attendance statistics. The service is available in English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, and Swedish. Eventbrite has made two acquisitions, Lanyrd and Eventioz and opened offices in Melbourne, Dublin and Nashville. In San Francisco alone, the company has employed nearly 300 people and is continuing to hire both locally and internationally. Investors include Tiger Global, DAG Ventures, Sequoia Capital, T. Rowe Price, and Tenaya Capital. Eventbrite was founded by Kevin Hartz, Renaud Visage, and Julia Hartz in 2006 and is based in San Francisco, California, USA.
