Events.com Aims To Connect Event Organizers, Consumers
San Diego-based Events.com--founded by one of the co-founders of The Active Network--is hoping to make it easier for event organizers and event goers better plan and find events, the company said this week. The startup, led by Gregg Parise, said Wednesday that it has launched a brand new, mobile-first cloud application which helps market events through social media, monetize events with ticketing, and much more. The company says it is targeting event planners running everything from marathons to races to pancake breakfasts with its platform. Events.com was founded by Mitch Thrower, one of the co-founders of The Active Network. Events.com says it already has 70 employees--split between La Jolla, Newport Beach,and Ottawa, Canada--working on its products.
