Tampa, FL (PRWEB) January 21, 2016
Venuetize, a mobile-first platform and vertically integrated services provider of live venue solutions for sports and entertainment businesses, has been selected by Startup Grind as one of the top 50 companies hand-picked from 200 cities globally for its 2016 Startup Program.
“Of the 1,100 startups that applied from across 80 countries, Venuetize was one of only 50 that were selected,” said Jon Romm, CEO of Venuetize. “We were told that our selection was based on the fact that we have a great team, solid industry traction, valuable technology, and massive opportunities in many different market verticals.”
Startup Grind Startup Program companies are an elite group of companies whose founders range from former Googlers to CERN Physicists to Forbes 30 Under 30. Startup Program companies are given access to Startup Grind’s network of mentors and investors. The program helps companies to accelerate their pace towards growth and success.
“We started this program after seeing many of the Accelerators and Incubators not doing much to really help companies,” says Derek Andersen, founder & CEO of Startup Grind. “We really wanted to make an actual difference in the startups trajectory and leverage all of our resources and network to their advantage.”
Venuetize is a mobile-first platform as a service that optimizes the intersection of personalized data, marketing analytics, relevant/targeted content, and interactive technologies designed to acquire, retain, and monetize loyal fan bases for sports businesses. Venuetize offers managed services and mobile solutions with a contextually-aware user interface for enhanced engagement and experiences for fans, patrons, and live event-goers.
