Our team is comprised of a group of experienced entrepreneurs, industry experts and ambitious leaders, all with diverse backgrounds. We work hard to cultivate a strong culture and ensure we are constantly growing and thriving, all while making a positive impact. Our team comes from various leading technology innovators like Apple, Amazon, eBay, Facebook, Intuit, Microsoft, Paypal, Stubhub and Ticketmaster, as well as leading cultural institutions such as Exploratorium in San Francisco and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
When it comes to organizations like museums, attractions, wineries, and historic properties, our founders saw a huge gap in the market for recurring ticketing and event technology to support these venues. That’s when they decided to re-invent visitation. They developed an enterprise solution that integrates an organization’s multiple systems, including membership management, online and onsite sales. This led to the state-of-the-art platform we have today that is revolutionizing the way organizations do business and the way visitors interact with these organizations.
