Discount Ticket Site ScoreBig Raises $14 Million

Another day, another big funding round for an online ticketing startup. ScoreBig, a site that promises “members-only” access to below retail price tickets, has raised $14 million, according to an SEC filing. The company lets members search for available tickets near to them. Users make a below retail-price offer for the tickets which is then accepted or denied by the seller, a la Priceline.

The company is headed by former NBA executive Adam Kanner, according to this TechCrunch write-up. The funding, which comes from U.S. Venture Partners and Bain Capital Ventures, comes a day after another online ticketing site, Ticketfly, raised $12 million in a new funding round led by Mohr Davidow Ventures.
