  1. EventBrite does mainly free events for free. You can’t run a Freemium model forever, without monetizing – will their new model be able to properly monetize to fund needed development over time. Feature development demanded by the market over time, is what makes software great. Think Salesforce or Workday.

    Also, they are not PCI Level 1 compliant like a couple of their largest competitors, meaning event planners that have paid events will look elsewhere.
