Gearbooker, the ‘Airbnb like’ platform for peer-2-peer sharing of equipment has good news to share (pun intended): 1. We’ve reached our minimum investment on our first Leapfunder round in 1,5 days time! However, we don’t stop there and we’re still raising funding. 2. We’ve seen very good growth this past month: our number of transactions (bookings) increased by 45%, our average transaction value increased by 52% & our rental revenues increased by 121% (This comparison applies to the same period 1 year earlier). Are you interested to join our growth? Feel free to send us a DM/email if you’d like to know more, and don’t forget to have a peek at our platform. Visit our round here.
Ticketing Group aims to make culture accessible to everyone, globally, by deploying data-driven initiatives. What a great week we had: our new website is live! This will increase our visibility in the cultural sector and shows our planning and ticketing tool in action. Also, Cultuurticket.nl is officially live and is included in the first radio campaign at Sublime FM, our media partner. We have also secured more partnerships with several big players in the Ticketing Field such as Tiqets which enables us to sell tickets for venues such as the Rijksmuseum, van Gogh Museum, Ann Frank House and many other big venues in the Netherlands.
