Liam Negus-Fancey co-founded Verve (Formerly StreetTeam) in 2012 after running the largest under-age events company in the UK, Lets Go Crazy, which sold 65,000 tickets in two years. During that time he noticed a trend in the way people were buying tickets (peer-to-peer) and set out to build a platform that reflected this form of social advocacy.
Today, Verve is the world’s leading peer-to-peer sales software for live entertainment and has recently just closed $10m in funding. It has offices in LA, AUS, NZ London and Poland and sold more than 300,000 tickets in 14 countries.
Verve enables its customers to turn their most influential fans into ambassadors who promote their events and sell tickets to their friends in return for rewards. Clients include Bonnaroo, Bestival, Forecastle, Reading, Leeds, Electric Zoo and many more.
Liam has a deep knowledge of the festival and events industry, and specific expertise in peer-to-peer sales and marketing. He sits on the board for several businesses in the live events/marketing sector.
