Amsterdam-based ticket booking platform Tiqets has raised US$60 million in a Series C financing round led by Airbnb, with continued support from prior lead investors HPE Growth Capital and Investion.
With this new funding, Tiqets plans to invest in initiatives that accelerate its growth, build richer experiences for customers, and create better tools for its venue partners — all in line with its vision of making culture more accessible for all.
“Travellers are seeking out a diverse range of experiences when they visit a new city. The Tiqets team has effectively used new technology to connect travellers to communities and we are excited to support their work,” said Philippe Magid, Airbnb’s art and culture director.
“We founded Tiqets to bring more people more frequently into the greatest venues around the world. We are thrilled to have Airbnb’s support and look forward to delivering great experiences to even more travellers,” Luuc Elzinga, co-founder and CEO of Tiqets, said.
