Event ticketing startup Tikkeo has expanded its footprint in Africa by going live in the Ivory Coast.

The Gabon-based firm allows organisers to promote their events and sell tickets online, with attendees paying via mobile.

With Tikkeo, organisers can run marketing campaigns, sell tickets, track registrations, and follow cash flow in real time.

“Our added value at the pan-African level is about technology. We have one of the most advanced technologies that allows us to cover the entire value chain of ticketing,” Tikkeo founder and chief executive officer Laurain Essono Ngoua told Disrupt Africa.

The startup has already notched more than 30,000 ticket sales in Gabon, and has now launched in the Ivory Coast.

Tikkeo makes revenue by charging commission of eight per cent for every ticket sold through its platform.
