This article looks at the top tech entrepreneurs changing the way we attend and plan events for good. The proliferation of startups in a particular industry can only be a positive sign. Despite the growing numbers of players only a few managed to disrupt the industry. Not all founders managed to grow to a successful business, attract investment and become household names. While everyone who launches a startup in the event industry and manages to keep it commercially sound deserves credit, only a few become inspiration for others.
I am a fan of Jayesh and how he provokes the event industry. His company Picatic has been among the first to launch crowdsourcing for events – one of the hot trends for this year – and recently announced a ‘pay what you want’ model for events. Allowing attendees to pay what they feel is surely a big bold step. I don’t know yet whether it is going to be a successful move but Jay has the guts to adventure in areas avoided by the masses and that means being an entrepreneur to me.
