HelloTickets is a global ticketing platform.
Created primarily for travellers, it has just sold part of its shareholding for €2m.
It has done so to new investors, but also to others who had previously shown their support.
Thus, the company will move from focusing solely on event tickets to a worldwide coverage of activities and travel.
More and more promoters are including online ticket sales for their shows.
This is a fact that is reflected both in the companies in the sector and in the movements of their corporate finances.
Hellotickets is a global ticketing platform.
It has a great differential value:
The firm expects to exceed ten million euros in turnover by 2020, a year in which it also expects to reach profitability and start generating profits.
In addition, it works with more than 100 travel agencies and sells 5,000 activities to customers in 15 different countries.
It currently has 25 employees and its headquarters are located in Madrid.
Until just a month ago, the platform's inventory was entirely focused on events and activities in the United States for those travelling there.
However, the road to expansion is now open: a new website with 5,000 activities in more than 30 specially selected and filtered destinations.
In doing so, it has expanded its business model to cover the global market for travel activities and experiences.
A walking tour of Amsterdam or a wine tasting in Florence are just some of the new options that can be found on their website.
There is no doubt that Hellotickets is ready to compete with the big players in the market.
