Congratulations, Xoom!

A three-day weekend is reason enough to celebrate, but today we have an extra reason to smile. This morning, stock began trading for Xoom, an international money transfer service that makes it easy for people to send funds to foreign countries (on mobile or on the web). The company was co-founded by our very own Kevin Hartz!

XOOM!

Kevin, Julia, and their eldest daughter on Wall Street this morning.

Kevin has had a long-standing fascination with payments and transactions. Before Xoom and Eventbrite, he was also an early investor in PayPal. We’re extremely lucky to have Kevin as one of our fearless leaders; his knowledge and background with online payments and transactions has been instrumental in Eventbrite’s growth.

Please join us as we raise our glasses (or..mugs of coffee) to congratulate the Xoom team. Here’s to sending money seamlessly for many more years to come!
