Created by Clockenflap founders Mike Hill and Pete Gordon, Ticketflap was the ticketing platform answer to their epic music and arts festival. After listening to Hill’s investment pitch at a bar in Soho, angel investor Martin Haigh (pictured middle) signed on as a seed investor in Clockenflap and was brought on as Ticketflap’s CEO to handle operations full-time.
Before leading the charge at Ticketflap, Haigh traded emerging market equities for the likes of HSBC and Merrill Lynch and has worked in London, New York and Hong Kong and has started and angel funded a number of startups. Besides a background in finance, Haigh also has a serious case of wanderlust. He’s travelled to places such as Antarctica, Colombia and Ethiopia, and believes that his globetrotting adventures have contributed to his entrepreneurial spirit.
