Ticketing service SeatGeek raised a monster round of new funding late last week: $62m in a Series C round led by Technology Crossover Ventures. It’s less than eight months since the company raised a Series B round of $35m, with previous investors Accel Partners, Causeway Media Partners, Mousse Partners and rapper Nas’ Queensbridge Venture Partners all chipping in again for the Series C.
The funding comes as SeatGeek reaches 3m downloads of its ticketing app, with more than 60% of its customers accessing the service on a mobile device. Co-founder Jack Groetzinger told the Wall Street Journal it’s planning to double its headcount in the next year, and push into non-English-speaking markets. SeatGeek has also been partnering with various digital music firms in recent times, including Spotify and Rdio.
