VenueNext, a San Francisco-based provider of a stadium operations’ mobile app, raised $9m in Series A round of funding.
Causeway Media Partners, Live Nation Entertainment, Twitter Ventures, Aruba Networks and other strategic investors participated in the round. As part of the funding round, Mark Wan, managing partner at Causeway, joined the company’s board.
Founded in 2013 by John Paul, CEO, VenueNext provides a platform that ties together isolated venue systems such as location services, ticketing, points of sale and concessionaire services to allow venue operators to make real-time, data-driven decisions, and then surface these through a context-aware mobile app which improves guest experiences and venue business outcomes.
It debuted during the San Francisco 49ers first season at its brand new home, Levi’s® Stadium.
