After being out of the ticket business for a while (BASS, Ticketmaster), I was asked to join Brown Paper Tickets, a very different breed than the others. They service thousands of clients worldwide, including 600 Roller Derby leagues.
I have been encouraged to advise clients and non-clients, do works for the community without regard to profit (the very successful blood drives with the Red Cross and Roller Derby Leagues, for example), because that is what founder William S Jordan and CEO Steve Butcher want the company to do.
So they are up for this prestigious bootstrapper of the year award because they haven’t taken one dime of Venture Capitalist money (as has virtually every other ticket company) and put community, clients, service and employees above profit.
Therefore, I am asking you to click onto this link and simply vote for them.
Thank you so much.
