“We’ve always tried to operate in a lean, capital-efficient manner and have never felt it necessary to have a large war chest of funds available. However, we did believe that it was important to raise sufficient capital to throw some fuel on the fire and increase our sales and brand awareness,” stated ShowClix CEO Joshua Dziabiak. “We were also excited to have the opportunity to add Harris Jones [Swallow Point] to our Board of Directors, as his extensive experience in both the mobile industry and in international business will be very valuable to the company moving forward.” ShowClix mainly provides ticketing solutions to large size promoters and event organizers.
