SeatGeek, the New York-based marketplace for premium tickets for sporting and entertainment events, is driving revenue for big publishers including Yahoo, The Wall Street Journal, The Daily News and others, says co-founder Russell D’Souza.
SeatGeek is not a ticket broker, but a marketplace which sends links to ticket brokers and receives a referral payment. Publishers who display links to tickets, primarily on sports pages, receive a percentage of a transaction.
The company was founded by Dartmouth ’07 graduates D’Souza and Jack Groetzinger.
It was named one of the TechCrunch50 in 2009.
