What We're Building

At Universe, our mission is simple: Bring people together in real life through events.

Founded in Toronto in 2011, we've built a platform for people to discover and create events all over the world. Following unprecedented growth in 2014, we expanded our offices from Toronto to San Francisco and doubled the size of our team that's dedicated to serving the needs of our organizers and fans. In 2015, Universe was acquired by Live Nation Entertainment and has continued its rapid growth, doubling the size of the team since the acquisition. In 2016, the company expanded to open offices in New York City and London England, to cover Europe.

Together, we've built a community of over 32,000 event organizers and hundreds of thousands of fans who are the heart of our company.
