SeatSwap is creating A Ticketing Platform Where Fans Can Trade Their Tickets for Othe

After several years of building and bootstrapping SeatSwap with a few nickels and a lot of hustle, while attending law school and working a full time job, I feel we are in a place where it is finally time for us to jump in, give this a real shot, and give the powers that be in this space a real run for their money. More importantly, I, Dan (the one writing this) didn't start this company to make a ton of money but rather to get more fans like myself, who, for whatever reason, kept having life get in the way of my plans to see my favorite bands, teams, and artists. While that is still the goal, we're coming to the realization that this space a lot more effed up than we originally anticipated and our much broader goal is to make event ticketing transparent, fair, and social. Going to an event and being a fan means being part of a community and a cause that is bigger than yourself and we feel as though the place you go to transact your tickets should be representative of that. (You can see my thoughts at greater length by clicking the links included below). 

In terms of what we've already built, we have a kick ass Web 1.0 which you can see by going to seatswaptickets.com/members. We also have some pretty big names who share that sentiment as everyone from Carnegie Hall to the Florida Panthers to the LA Dodgers, Brooklyn Bowl, the Adidas Family, etc have kicked the tires on working with us but we simply weren't in a place where we could build something for those guys. We have a recognizable brand in the New York market which is a by product of some creative marketing tactics as well as a lot of late nights standing outside your favorite venues handing out promo cards and pressing the flesh. We even had one of our original media properties make it's national television debut as part of ESPN's "30 for 30", "Mike and the Mad Dog." 

We're proud of what we built but we know we have a long way to go and could really use all the help we can get. I'm awful, perhaps the worst, at asking people for money and that's why we have avoided raising any sort of formal round of funding up to this point but I'm hoping that you guys, our fans who have stuck with us since we were sleeping in our cars outside of an Upper East Side bar to help us get to where we want to go. It doesn't matter the amount, it doesn't even matter whether you give at all, if you know someone who believes in our mission and wants to be a part of it or just want to say "hi" feel free to email me directly at [email protected]

At the end of the day, we're all just trying to find the thing that moves us and I just want to be able to help more of those people have an experience and make a memory that lasts a life time. If you feel the same way, don't hesitate to let it be heard.

Goals
$0 of $2,000 per month
$2,000/month would be enough to allow my good buddy and our Technical Mastermind, Nick the ability to quit his shitty cube job and build amazing iterations of SeatSwap that will include the ability to send multi-party swaps, the ability to do social buy and sell, a mobile experience, etc.
