Zvents was an online entertainment guide, founded in 2005 by Tyler Kovacs and Ethan Stock, that helps their users find local events. These events include music, art, sports, or activities. With the increase in usage of social media going up each year, this company was a great way to easily browse fun things to do. Zvents worked with hundreds of companies, listing events on their site as well as uploading the listing to their partners’ websites.
Zvents’ headquarters were in San Mateo, California. It was first created to find events in the Bay Area, but has extended its services to most cities in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Ireland. In 2011, Zvents was bought out by StubHub in a mutually beneficial partnership because Zvents increased Stubhub’s own event listings by a great deal.
