This app helps people reserve playoff tickets to sports events at face value. Tickets to high-demand events often sell out quickly, partly because scalpers will buy in bulk to resell on websites like Ticketmaster. Unfortunately, they are often resold at exorbitant prices -- often thousands in difference -- and leave true fans unable to attend games.
The ShooWin app allows sports fans to "access your bucket list at face value" and actually go to once in a lifetime type games. The smartphone application has yet to launch, but is currently accepting beta testers for this spring. Backed by BBG Ventures, the startup has raised $1.25 million in seed funding and is presently working with leagues and teams on ticket reservation availability.
