Comes A Time: Brando Rich

On this episode of Comes A Time Oteil and Mike welcome Brando Rich, founder and CEO of CashorTrade, onto the show. You’ll hear the guys discuss the origin of CashorTrade and the principle ideas behind the service, how the company has maintained the feel of a close-knit community as they’ve grown larger, and the war between artists and fans and big ticketing companies. You’ll also hear Brando tell the guys a few stories about the unique ways that CashorTrade connects old and new friends, explain how the ticket market functions as a whole and tell you why tickets have gotten so expensive, and talk about the future of paperless tickets.

Brando Rich is an avid music fan who grew upset with the secondary ticket market. To counter this exploitation of fans, he created, the world’s only social network where real fans buy, sell, and trade tickets for face value and avoid scalpers. Now with nearly 250,000 members on the app and 3,000 new fans signing up each month, CashorTrade has become an ideal alternative in the industry. They’ve solidified exciting partnerships to take part in their Face Value Manifesto, including agreements with Billy Strings and Twiddle. Summer Camp Music Festival, Candler Park, Disc Jam, and the Werkout Music Festival are some of the festivals on board as well.
