Event Crowdfunding Brings New Meaning to Pre-sale Tickets

Online ticketing startup Picatic is now trying to grow its business by helping to create more events, launching a crowdfunding platform called EventTilt.

Pre-sale tickets for popular events are a common perk for fan clubs and credit card reward programs, giving fans a shot at seats before tickets go in sale to the general public.  But event crowdfunding platforms like EventTilt or GigFunder allow fans to purchase tickets before an event even exists.

Event promoters, artists or venues can create an event pitch and set a funding threshold to make sure the event will break even before they commit to actually putting it on.
