Tiqets announced its series C financing of USD 60 million led by Airbnb with continued support from prior lead investors HPE Growth Capital and Investion. With this new funding, the company 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.
The platform for booking tickets for museums and attractions has connected millions of people to thousands of venues in over 60 countries around the world.
“Travelers 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, art and culture director at Airbnb.
“The objective of Tiqets is to bring a larger number of people more frequently into the greatest venues around the world. We look forward to delivering great experiences to even more travellers now,” said Luuc Elzinga, co-founder and CEO of Tiqets.
