Fan Identity + Ticket Authenticity Platform
Bandwagon is a B2b analytics company that uses data and proprietary blockchain technology to help sports teams and event organizers eliminate ticket fraud while increasing fan engagement. Their bold vision for the future of ticketing is to increase distribution, allowing fans to buy tickets however and wherever they want. Bandwagon addresses multi-billion dollar problems related to fraud, untracked reselling, and a total lack of data visibility that plagues the $30B+ ticket market industry.
Leveraging the power of blockchain technology, the Bandwagon platform helps event organizers and venues confirm the validity of their digital tickets, while helping them understand who owns them. This eliminates ticket fraud, regardless of where the ticket was purchased. Ticket sales are enforced by smart contracts securely, mathematically, and cryptographically.
Founder + CEO Harold Hughes has been featured on the Gimlet Media podcast “The Pitch” and the reality show “Meet the Drapers”. The Bandwagon team puts a new spin on SaaS — “Stadium-as-a-Service”, where event organizers can deliver value to their fans before, during, and after the event.
