About us

In 2018, we started vivenu with a bold mission: to transform the global event ticketing industry for good. Hundreds of thousands of event organizers around the globe rely on solutions that haven’t kept up with today's needs and expectations.

We finally put this to an end. Now and forever. Our API-first ticketing platform breaks limitations and unlocks huge potential: letting leading organizers manage, market, and analyze ticket sales effortlessly with our powerful unified solution.
Leading tech VCs, exceptional entrepreneurs, and industry experts such as the owners of the San Francisco 49ers invested more than $65 million in vivenu to back our extraordinary growth.

We are not an ordinary company and we are not looking for people who want just another job. Our team consists of truly driven individuals, working together to achieve the unimaginable.
