StateChamps: Online Ticketing for High Schools

StateChamps provides online ticketing for high schools and high school athletic associations.

I’ve always cared about one thing above all else... providing the best e-ticketing experience possible for our schools and fans.

Schmidt’s Instagift platform was the technology behind Birmingham startup Preptix, which recently relocated to Atlanta after an acquisition. "I’m extremely proud of the work Instagift’s ecommerce software has done for the state’s biggest high schools, along with the Alabama High School Athletic Association. I’ve always cared about one thing above all else... providing the best e-ticketing experience possible for our schools and fans."

TicketBiscuit, Schmidt said, shares his goal and vision. "As a designer of high-school e-ticketing software, I appreciate when it is done the right way. Jeff and his team, like me, are committed to building a great product. I especially love the work they’ve done on mobile with their Share and Tear technology. Mobile ticketing is the future, and StateChamps is the industry leader in mobile. Plus, I love that they’re in Alabama."

TicketBiscuit CEO Jeff Gale added, "We’re long-time admirers of Nate and Instagift, and we were equally impressed by the technology he and his company provided for Preptix. We’re happy to be on the same team now: the team playing for schools, athletes, and fans."
