Although it’s joining Ticketmaster, the company will continue to operate and support its products. In its announcement, Eventjoy writes:
With this partnership, we’ll have access to more resources so we can develop Eventjoy even faster and empower a larger number of people to put on their own events.
So what does this mean for you? You’ll have more tools and an even better product to organize and experience amazing events. We’re going to continue focusing on building a mobile and social events platform and are excited for you to continue along with us throughout the journey.
Back by Y Combinator, Eventjoy built a mobile-first suite of tools for event organizers that includes online ticketing, event websites, event mobile apps (iOS and Android), analytics, social media, and attendee communications. It’s bit like a cross between Eventbrite and Bizzabo, if you will.
In turn, the custom websites and apps that Evenjoy creates can make an event’s experience much more enjoyable for attendees as they can find maps, agendas, and so on from a quick and easy point of access. They can also communicate with other attendees.
Eventjoy got its start during a Startup Weekend, and after catching that organization’s attention, was subsequently used for 14 Startup Weekend events.
Eventjoy was founded by Karl White and Todd Goldberg, and is based in Menlo Park, Calif. It participated in Y Combinator’s Winter 2014 batch.
