In the latest Morgans Startup Series, I chatted with Josh Ross, co-founder of Humanitix. Humanitix is a not-for-profit service that provides a platform for event organisers to outsource their ticketing process and subsequent booking fees to benefit charities:
"We're creating this whole synergy around the ecosystem of getting the right charity linked up with the right event, and that costs the event organiser nothing extra... The philosophy behind what we're doing for our customers is that doing the right thing shouldn't have to cost extra."
Josh is a former fund manager and tells a fantastic story about how he founded the business as well as their current engagement with events, charities, philanthropists and the community at large. Josh also offers his words of advice for aspiring entrepreneurs:
