Granted wants music and sport loving millennials or GenZ fans to use their new experiential ticketing platform to access live concerts, memorable experiences and sporting events after yesterday’s public launch and announcement of a $3 million seed investment round. Granted’s proprietary technologies includes three unique product offerings: live event tickets to concerts and sporting events, unique VIP packages for concert tours, and once in a lifetime auction with committed artists and athletes that benefit the charity of the talent’s choice. The Los Angeles-base startup also designed, developed, and minted custom NFTs and has the ability to accept cryptocurrency on its platform. The Sports Techie community blog is proud to feature another inspiring woman owned sports tech startup business story, this time because of Shayma Hesari, CEO. Granted is disrupting the male dominant ticketing market in a way never before possible for consumers of all ages and gender.
Granted is on a mission to make every experience a memorable one. The investment capital is helping them to become the leading technology-first platform generating a more meaningful fan connection between artists and fans seeking tickets. The Granted Fan Promise guaranteed tickets to music concerts and sporting events across the globe helping weary ticket buyers rest assured. Granted is breaking free from traditional ticketing industry models.
The company is a female owned and operated business targeting increased social impact regarding product offerings and services. Founded on the principles of trust and transparency, Granted is creating a more equitable ticketing and experiences platform for all parties involved. The management team is focused on addressing the flaws in the current ticketing market head-on, not just for fans, but the artists who work to deliver unique experiences for their fans and loyal followers.
Granted aims to develop a secondary market offering artists the creator royalties they deserve and prioritizing user engagement over gross sales.
Granted is also a global supplier of VIP experiences, providing access to exclusive tour packages, meet & greet upgrades, and early entry upgrades. The 2022 Granted VIP partnerships include: The Kid LAROI and Rotimi tours, with exclusive tour dates and events which are currently available. Pricing for event tickets and experiences through Granted are competitive, and align with current ticketing market and VIP Package rates, with Granted auctions ranging from $500 – $30,000.
“2022 is going to be the year Granted spreads its wings,” said Shayma Hesari, CEO of Granted. “We spent 2021 building a custom platform that is both agile and user friendly. This coming year will be spent adding new features that aid in the discovery of new and emerging artists, creating more engaging purchase flows for consumers, and announcing unique fan activations and VIP partnerships. At the end of the day, we’re just fans of music. This industry has operated the same way for too long–it’s time to shake things up.”
In its first year, Granted has offered exclusive premium offerings across sports, music and entertainment verticals with incredible talent like The Kid LAROI, Zedd, Klay Thompson, Logan Paul, Saquon Barkley, and other talents.
Granted experiences prior to public launch include: Logan Paul vs Floyd Mayweather VIP Packages, Saquon Barkley NFT Auction, The Grove XXIII Golf Experience for Four Guests, Meet Klay Thompson at a Golden State Warriors Game, FaceTime with Shaquille O’Neal and Get a Follow from Shaq on Instagram, Party with Kygo, Zedd, & Gryffin.

Sports Techie, selling tickets is not rocket science but it’s becoming a lot closer to it because of advanced technologies, fierce competition and visionary founders. Vivid Seats decided to move into the DFS props space to morph their fast-growing ticketing platform after the acquisition of Betcha Sports. Granted will most likely follow this path and look to acquire additional assets to compliment their existing ticket offerings, VIP experiences and NFT drops while accepting cryptocurrencies.
That is unless someone like TicketMaster acquires them first.
Either way, move over men, women are changing to ticketing industry for the better.
Innovation makes the tech world equal.
See you later sportstechie in Seattle, Atlanta and around the world!
