Join Up Dots Business Coaching Podcast

Introducing Festival Pass Founder Ed Vincent Today's guest joining us on the Join Up Dots podcast is Ed Vincent founder of Festival Pass. He is an entrepreneur with over twenty years of business, technology, and management experience having founded and exited several companies in that time including helping to launch film festivals in multiple locations and creating the concept for a Maxim branded hotel in the Caribbean. Most recently, he led a data platform and consultancy in the entertainment space with clients including A&E Networks, AMC Networks, Screenvision, MovieTickets.com and was brought into MoviePass as an interim head of data. These experiences gave him the insight needed to make festivalPass a reality. As he says "Hi, I’m Ed, founder of the world’s first festival and live events subscription service providing access to music, film, food and wine, and tech and innovation — Festival Pass. Enjoy hundreds of festivals locally and globally for one monthly fee. FestivalPass is a story about community and creating experiences that changes you. We as humans need connection; it’s in our DNA — as strong as the need for food, water, and warmth. How The Dots Joined Up For Ed We are bringing our members the only place to make accessing, discovering, and attending festivals spanning industries the most user-friendly, frictionless, and affordable member experience possible. We strive every day to secure new event partners and think about what our customers want from a mobile app that complements their lived experiences. I have learned what works and what doesn’t work in this space and look forward to inspiring people to lead active and engaging lives every day by participating in live community events both locally and globally. Great stuff, but its ok to think "this is a good idea" and another to make it happen, so how did it happen? How did he create a network of festivals who believed in him, before he had actually anything to offer them? And where have been the struggles that has made Leisurepass a reality? Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr. Ed Vincent. Show Highlights During the show we discussed such deep weighty subjects with Ed Vincent such as: Ed shares how there are 1,000's of festivals across the world and how his team seek out the events every week. We discuss the early stages of building his business before he even had a business - similarly to Airbnb's business model and lastly...... Why its such a value driven idea as there is no additional transaction fee for attending events....a true win win for all of us
