Entrepreneur (14) announces his third start-up at Web Summit

Waterford student Jordan Casey launches website and app for people to manage events

Fourteen-year-old Waterford student Jordan Casey this morning announced his third company - Eventzy - at the Web Summit.

He said Eventzy, which has the tagline “events made easy” will be a website and app for people to manage events on.

"People can create an event on the site, or add an event to Facebook from the app. It will allow users to create their own ticket system and manage the event schedule."

He said the software is currently in beta testing but will be launched in the new year.


“We will have a free version for smaller events and a paid version for larger, corporate events. We won’t be competing with Eventbrite as they are mainly about tickets. Our software will allow users to manage events and promote them on social media.”

Casey launched Teachware at the Web Summit last year. He said more than 300 teachers have signed up to use the software with more than 150 using it on a daily basis.
