The last few months for us have been a whirlwind of emotion and opportunities – we’ve acquired our first customers, sponsored a conference, raised some money and added some great new members to our team. We’re embarking on a very exciting journey and now we’d love to share this with you.
Get Invited began its life as a university project just under two years ago, it was founded by myself, David Turner and Christopher Murphy. We ran our first event just six months later and provided the ticketing for the Ulster Festival of Art and Design, where we sold 2,247 tickets in just under two weeks.
Since then we’ve achieved a number of key milestones, including being selected as one of only 30 applicants to attend eBootcamp at Stanford University; sponsoring Industry Conference; and pitching at the Bank of Ireland 25K Awards.
Get Invited has grown significantly since the early days of late night coding and eating Mars bars for dinner at the Belfast School of Art. It has developed into a real company with huge potential and we’re all very proud of our wee baby.
It’s our first venture and many of the challenges that lie ahead are new to us. We’ll be documenting our progress here and we’ll also be sharing knowledge about design, development, business, providing tips and advice on using Get Invited and getting the most from your event.
We’d like to thank those who have helped and supported us in getting to where we are now, especially Mr. Tim Brundle and we look forward to sharing our journey with you.
