Seatwave acquires Skelper



I am back in the saddle after a month long hiatus and glad to report that Seatwave acquired Dutch ticketing leader Skelper.  Besides great commercial agreements we are getting additional revenues, customers and a strong local management team.  Skelper has exclusive deals with Feyenoord, PSV, FC Groningen and others.   M&A between growth companies is hard to do and harder to do well but here there was clealry a meeting of minds between entrepreneurs and we are glad to welcome the skelper team on board the Seatwave rocketship.

I can hear jokes about the unfortunate name but give the guys a break, English as a second language, not that easy.  After all Dutch folks also named us “Atlas Venture” and forgot the “s” .  Covered in Paidcontent although clearly Robert was in a hurry to publish :-).

I could not find a photo of skelper MD David Van Hoytema so I put one of Sophie Van Hoytema instead.  Just after she got those tickets to see Ajax trash Feyenoord.
