Founder, Co-CEO | Humanitix


Joshua Ross


High school mates Adam McCurdie and Josh Ross founded Humanitix after making a pact to escape the corporate world and do something different and meaningful with their careers. Like many social entrepreneurs, they began by looking for industries with inefficiencies that could be ripe for reinvention. Then they found it: tickets. Event ticketing has always been frustrating for hosts and guests alike and everyone hates booking fees. So in 2016 Humanitix ambitiously set out to disrupt ticketing—for good!

It was clear from the start that their crazy idea wasn’t so crazy. They stayed laser-focused on developing a great product with amazing customer support, and hosts continued to switch to Humanitix for the superior customer experience and “no-brainer” social benefits of the 100% for-purpose model. Soon the organisation was funded by the Atlassian Foundation and the NSW Government.

Then in 2018 Humanitix won the Google Impact Challenge and has since grown to be Australia and New Zealand's leading ticketing platform, and as of 2021 is rapidly scaling in North America.
