Letter from the Editor: This Week at Eventbrite

Learning how to use the espresso machine was only one bit of exciting news at Eventbrite this week.

Hi, Readers:

Phew.

We’re taking a moment to catch our breaths at Eventbrite.

It’s been a big week for us. Some of the things we’re celebrating include:

  • The announcement of $50 million in a Series E round of financing, led by Tiger Global. We’re pumped, because this will allow us to invest in more and better customer service, the scalability of our technology, and building more great features to make event organization and management even more easy and delightful for you, our users;
  • The closing of our Black Eyed Peas ticket giveaway, where tens of thousands of entrants put their name in the hat to win tickets to the free Central Park show (you can still win VIP tickets here!);
  • Welcoming two new faces to Eventbrite, bringing our team to 140 Britelings, the largest number in the company’s history.

I also figured out how to use the espresso machine in the kitchen, which is pretty exciting.

We hope that you are as excited as we are with all of this news. We wish you a great weekend, and see you next week with some more blog posts!

Cheers,
Tighe
