Picatic

Picatic

Picatic is a crowd-funding platform for the event ticketing and management space.

Picatic guarantees successful events by completely eliminating risk for event organizers. Ticket buyers are given an opportunity to make their favorite events happen by pledging funding toward an event's ‘tilt target’. A pledge entitles the buyer to a discounted ticket, if the event meets it's tilt target before the posted deadline. If an event does not ‘tilt’, the ticket buyers' are simply not charged. Event organizers will never lose money again!
