FanSnap Raises $5.2 Million

Posted Aug 14, 2009

FanSnap is a web startup that focuses on ticket searches.  Earlier this week, the company announced $5.2 million in funding led by Highland Capital Partners.  Richard de Silva of Highland will be joining the FanSnap Board of Directors as a result of the funding.

Thus far FanSnap has raised about $15.7 million after receiving $10 million in Series A from General Catalyst Partners last year.

To find the best deals on tickets, FanSnap searches through StubHub, eBay, and RazorGator.  FanSnap claims to have over 13 million tickets indexed in their search engine across over 30,000 events.

One of the cool features FanSnap has to offer is that there is an image of the venue, such as a stadium with different hot spot images that correlate with the tickets that are selling.  Below is an image of how it works.
