Backers find FIXR just the ticket for funding event

logoThere’s just 49 days to go till June 21st when – hopefully – all remaining Covid restrictions are lifted and the partying can commence again in earnest for all (including not one but two of the TechMarketView team whose birthday falls on that very date!)

This is very good news for event organisers and their ecosystems, including London-based event ticketing and discovery start-up, VIPR Digital, which trades as FIXR. Incorporated in 2012, FIXR has raised a further £6.5m in a Series A funding round backed by FSE Group, Armajaro Holdings, Smith and Williamson, and Carlisle Commerce Group. This follows multiple seed funding rounds over prior years.

FIXR aims to make it really easy for event organisers to organise, advertise and manage ticketing for an event. There’s no fee to set the event up on the FIXR platform, only charging a fixed fee plus commission per ticket sold.

FIXR pitches head-to-head against NYSE-listed Eventbrite, which claims to be the world's largest event technology platform. Eventbrite charges event organisers on a similar basis to FIXR.

But there’s always room for a challenger in a market – so let’s hope there are lots of event organisers for whom FIXR really is just the ticket!
