Rush49 is an American hyper-local eCommerce company that allows customers to discover, buy and save on tickets for events, attractions, and entertainment activities.[1][2][3] The company is based in El Segundo, California.[4][5]

History[edit]

Rush49 was founded in 2011 by Vamsi “Kumar” Kotla,[6] Murali Tammineni, Kanoj Kotla, and Kai Stubbe.[7] They started a company to provide discounted access to adrenaline-pumping experiences in the Los Angeles area.[8][9] By 2012, Rush49 expanded across the U.S., and in 2013, extended their offering in Canada. In 2014, Rush49 Partnered with Moon and Back travel to offer the space travel experiences. Rush49 is both web and mobile-based and has over 2,100 venue partners, including Caesars Entertainment, NASCAR Racing Experience, Spartan Race, Tyson Ranch and Virgin.[10] The company has presence in over 30 cities across the United States and Canada.

Business model[edit]

Rush49 does not charge anything from merchants for listing their experiences on the platform. Once they list the experiences, consumers pay Rush49 for the tickets of the merchants. After receiving full payment from a customer, Rush49 keeps its commission and transfers the balance amount to the merchant after the event occurs or the ticket is used. Rush49 also provides Marketing and PR services to promote the events.
