Seatwave offers buyers a secure environment in which to buy secondary tickets, with delivery guarantees and a host of other measures to keep the touts at bay.

Since launching in 2007 the site has grown its user base to 1.4 million and has at least 700,000 tickets available on the site at any given time. The company topped the Guardian’s Tech Media 100 list in 2009, in addition to winning a string of other business and industry awards.

We’re incredibly proud of how far the company has come since our last Startups 100 list. Joe has massacred the competition securing some fantastic partnerships and incredible growth for his fan-to-fan ticket exchange.
