Cape Town based startup, Mickets, has the solution of purchasing tickets to gigs. The start-up has developed an app that will allow users to purchase tickets and gain access to events using their mobile phones.
This app ‘The Micket.me website’ can be accessed from a PC or mobile device, with payment made via credit card or EFT, after which the mobile ticket — or “micket” — is delivered via e-mail or SMS.
Riaan Nolan, a co-founder of the start-up said that tickets will not have to be collected or redeemed or lost because it’s always available on their mobiles.
The website was founded in 2010 by twin brothers Riaan and Winston Nolan, after meeting an event organizer who brought Christian metal band P.O.D. (Payable on Death) to South Africa.
Riaan, a previous eMarketer , handles the infrastructure and server side of Micket, while his brother, Winston, being a developer, developed the site.
