If event organising and ticketing is your passion, you might want to meet our cool start up BilletFix, that founded a heavenly solution for all (student) event organisers nightmare – ticketing. Mads from BilletFix told us why they do what they do and how the road has been.
As Mads explains,
“A lot of students put a huge amount of work into creating events for their fellow students – and they even do it voluntarily! BilletFix’ mission is to assist these organisers by providing a stupidly easy and inexpensive online ticketing service so they spend less energy on administration and more time on creating awesome events. “
The best part of the system is the simplicity – it takes only a minute to start selling tickets and it does not matter from which platform your event takes place. As you cannot sell tickets on FaceBook or through mail, you can just provide the BilletFix link to your event and its done. The best part? If you’re an organiser, it is totally free of charge for you. The attendee can use their credit card of MobilePay to purchase a ticket.
So, back to basics.
We want to hear what thrives you to do what you’re doing?
Mads also shared some entrepreneurial advice to all the newcomers:
“Have an idea? DON’T just build the product right away. Ask a lot of people you don’t know. Even try to sell it before having the product! It doesn’t cost you anything but some time you would have spend on Netflix. What if that goes well? Can you pull the trigger starting a company? Yes you can, and yes it’s scary running a company. But it’s exciting, and you can handle it! And yes, you don’t earn that much money. But the experiences will totally be worth it! And no, I’m not just saying it because I’ve spent 1,5 years running a startup. I could have quit a lot of times and get a regular student job.
