Screw It Just Do It with Alex Chisnall

Oct 11, 2017

"It was at that moment that I realised that a buyer and seller had a need, and that the current operators in that market weren't fulfilling that need, for whatever reason. It really got me thinking about the secondary ticket market...and I actually stumbled across this £3 Billion opportunity.

Twenty-Four year old tech entrepreneur Luke Massie sold his first business aged just 17 for £96,000.

Having invested £50,000 of that in his next startup, Vibe Tickets is now valued at over £6,000,000. With over 200,000 fans on social media and investment from Matt Newing, Scott Fletcher and Richard Branson, this "Air BNB" for concert tickets" is on a mission to stop ticket touts for good.

Also on this week's show I speak to Alice Reeves who is the living embodiment of the phrase "Screw it, Just do it". On the day she spoke at a Virgin StartUp event she gave up her job at a global agency to set up her own agency - The Joyful Web.

Her entrepreneurial qualities were never far away as she has previously written a series of published children's stories under the title "Truth and tails".
