Introducing our panel:

Steve Pearce, co-founder & CEO of TickX

Steve Pearce BGF Pic.jpg

Steve Pearce, co-founder & CEO of TickX, is building the global go-to platform to discover, compare and book experiences. The inspiration for TickX came to Steve whilst studying at the University of Manchester where he learned first-hand during his time there how, unlike other industries such as flights or hotels, the events industry lacked a single platform where users could discover and compare prices.

After graduating from University, Steve went on to join the global tech company Arrow, developing TickX in his spare time alongside co-founder, Sam Coley. The pair went onto raise seed investment from Ministry of Sound in 2015 and garnered industry recognition, which in turn got the attention of the BBC research team for Dragons' Den. Steve and Sam were invited to pitch on the show, who despite earning offers from the Dragons, turned them down and went on to raise 50x more through highly regarded investors including BGF Ventures, 24Haymarket, Nick Ferguson (Chairman of Savills / Former Chairman of Sky) and Stan Boland (CEO of FiveAI)

2019 will see TickX aiming to double their 2.5 million users from the previous year, putting a large focus on AI-based personalised recommendations
