SeatlabNFT launch £1,000,000 Event Creator Fund

SeatlabNFT has launched a £1,000,000 SeatlabNFT Event Creator Fund to help artists and event organisers with the cost of running live events. These non-repayable grants are open to applications from events and festivals worldwide. Successful applicants will receive their grants in instalments, becoming a SeatlabNFT sponsored event and official ticketing client in the process, giving them wider exposure on the world stage. 
There is no minimum or maximum amount associated with the grant as different events have varied capital requirements. Grants can be used towards the many upfront costs associated with running a live event, such as venue deposits, artist booking fees, and marketing campaigns.

Ryan Kenny, director of Seatlab, said: ‘We’re excited to announce the SeatlabNFT Event Creator Fund, which we hope will provide organisers around the world with the financial injection needed to allow them to try out and embrace our event ticketing technology at their events! We’re looking to work with a wide range of events, so we encourage everybody who will benefit to apply.”
Applications can be made via seatlabnft.com and will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Applicants will be asked to provide detailed information about their event, including any venue contracts and artist agreements. SeatlabNFT also looks at the applicant’s experience of running successful events, the social media following of relevant stakeholders, and anything else that will help them better understand the event’s viability. Lastly, applicants will need to outline the grant size they’re requesting and how they will allocate funds. SeatlabNFT will internally assess applications and make a decision within a few weeks.
Successful applicants will receive their grants in instalments, unlocking the next payment when they reach a significant milestone. Although each grant is assessed on a case-by-case basis, typical milestones are:
  • Sign-on bonus
  • When tickets go on sale
  • 50 per cent of tickets sold
  • 100 per cent of tickets sold
  • Day of the event
