Founded in 2014 by brothers Liam and Callum Negus-Fancey, 27 and 30, Pollen is a marketplace that brings together curated, shared experiences in one place. Its technology integrates directly with major ticketing providers such as Ticketmaster and Eventbrite, and Pollen’s 30,000 members have booked a total of one million experiences in more than 75 destinations worldwide. Demand for its innovative services saw sales reach £44.8m last year. However, this year it has been hit hard by the effects of the pandemic on travel and events, and has laid off 72 of its total of more than 400 staff. It says it has shifted to selling experiences for 2021.
