When I launched The Venture Platform in 2010, the goal of cultivating a successful web development agency specializing in the arts and culture sector seemed like a long-term event but as it turned out, it was a waypoint on the road to something bigger.
As of January 1, 2022, The Venture Platform officially became part of UpStage Technologies.
This decision marks the growth of Venture’s agency-based business into a comprehensive Software as a Service (SaaS) company uniquely positioned to meet the demand for a platform that unites website, CRM, ticketing, fundraising, marketing, and a full range of digital commerce and customer services.
While The Venture Platform will continue to be offered as a standalone service, it will also become a cornerstone of the larger UpStage CRM platform.
Since announcing UpStage last month, the request for info and to schedule a demo has been remarkable, there’s barely a day that goes by without hearing from someone new. All of this only reinforces the research that arts and culture orgs are hungry for something tasty in the ticketing CRM sector.
