UT Students Develop Ticket Software
Advanced and innovative software designed by UT graduate students Barry Kahn, Andrew Mills and Jiten Dalvi could revolutionize the way people buy and sell entertainment tickets.
Their fledgling company Qcue will face off against other entrepreneurial teams from around the world this weekend in the Rice Business Plan Competition at Rice University.
In one year, the team has developed a program that will create an efficient resale market that box offices can control for entertainment tickets. Instead of buying tickets from second-party distributors like eBay, the team’s software allows the original box office to mediate the resale process. [Daily Texan]
