20100204 TiXiT Logo - BigInterview with TiXiT CEO, Mike Figliuolo
I had the pleasure of talking with Mike Figliuolo about Columbus’ newest company. As you read the interview I am sure you will agree this is another exciting venture for Columbus, Ohio and you’ll want to check out TiXiT!
Michele: So who is TiXiT and what do you guys do?
Mike: TiXiT is a Columbus-based company that offers event promoters (sports, music, theatre, etc.) an intelligent system for discounting and selling tickets that would otherwise go unsold.  We love the idea of negotiating discounts directly with venues and passing those along to consumers.
Michele: Where did the idea come from?
Mike: This is a classic “start-up started in a Starbucks” company.  I was having coffee with Dave Cherry (TiXiT’s founder) one day and he told me about this idea he had for a ticketing discounting company.  I’ve been involved in start-ups for several years and when Dave mentioned it, my eyes lit up.
