Mobile Ticketing App Applauze Raises $7.2 Million in Funding
Mobile and events such as concerts and athletic contests are a natural fit, and these investors want in.
Excerpt from AllThingsD
The company behind mobile event app Applauze has raised $7.2 million from investors including True Ventures, m8 Capital and StubHub co-founder Jeff Fluhr, on the back of quick growth from selling tickets through its app, which launched in March of this year.
… The Applauze app, which is only available for iOS, has a nifty accordion-style interface for browsing sports, music and theater tickets, as well as free community events. In some cases, it offers VIP perks associated with tickets, but in general, the attraction is ease-of-use and upfront pricing, rather than discounts.
