Vibe Tickets CEO to speak at disrupters event


The founder of highly rated tech firm Vibe Tickets is set to speak at BusinessCloud’s ‘meet the disrupters’ event.

Luke Massie’s company is really going places, having recently attracted more than £343,000 in funding from 201 investors on Crowdcube, including £260,000  from serial tech investor Scott Fletcher.

Massie, 23, founded the Lancashire-based ticketing business in 2013 when he became frustrated by his experience at re-selling tickets for a concert he could no longer attend.

The crowdfunding campaign, which is ongoing and has a target of £600,000, is making 10 per cent of the business available for purchase by fans, followers, friends and venture capitalists.

Fletcher, the founder and chairman of specialist private cloud and managed services provider ANS, said: “Vibe Tickets has the potential to disrupt the industry and that really appeals to me.”

MPD Group CEO David Grimes has also been confirmed for the event while Push Doctor CEO Eren Ozagir will speak about his extensive experience in technology.

Sectors as diverse as retail, healthcare, finance, education, recruitment, law, hospitality and holidays are undergoing fundamental change.

Uber, Netflix, Skype, Spotify, WhatsApp and Airbnb are perfect examples of tech companies that have driven a coach and horses through their respective industries.

BusinessCloud will be looking at which sectors are ripe for disruption next and speak to some of the companies hoping to change the business landscape forever at the breakfast event on September 15th in Manchester.

It will be chaired by BusinessCloud editor and award-winning journalist Chris Maguire.
