Our Story

How it all started

Josh and Adam have been best friends for over a decade. They have volunteered for a range of organisations, sharing a passion for health, environment, education and indigenous affairs. Together, they recognise the exciting potential for technological disruption to play a role in philanthropy.

After volunteering two years of their time to get Humanitix off the ground, there is now a broad team working with Humanitix, with considerable support from some of Australia’s largest philanthropists.

From here on the sky is the limit. The events ticketing industry generates billions in fees! Imagine if we converted the booking fees into ongoing sustainable funding for the causes we all care about.

Our goal is to provide a better service, at a better price, whilst donating profits to charity.
