SeatGeek Introduces Partnership With Google, New Google Pay Feature - SeatGeek users now can add their purchased tickets into their Google Pay app, storing their ticket alongside credit cards and boarding passes.

(PLAY VIDEO) Boxed CEO Chieh Huang's TED Talk: Confessions of a Recovering Micromanager - Think about the most tired you've ever been at work. It probably wasn't when you stayed late or came home from a road trip -- chances are it was when you had someone looking over your shoulder, watching your each and every move. "If we know that micromanagement isn't really effective, why do we do it?" asks entrepreneur Chieh Huang. In a funny talk packed with wisdom and humility, Huang shares the cure for micromanagement madness -- and how to foster innovation and happiness at work. Join the Boxed team

Ibotta Mobile Commerce Report Finds 47 Percent of Consumers Prefer Shopping Via Mobile - "Mobile has changed every aspect of the shopping experience. From the way consumers shop, to the way they research purchases and make decisions about what to buy and even how they engage with the brands they love," said Bryan Leach, Founder and CEO of Ibotta. "Everyone's shopping behavior is different and unique to them, and brands cannot expect customer loyalty with a one-size-fits-all approach. The goal of Ibotta's inaugural Mobile Commerce Reportis to highlight the shift in mobile shopping behavior while providing insight into the best ways to attract and retain loyal customers." Join the Ibotta team

Factual, Ibotta Identify Unique Behavior Based On Location, Purchase Data -  For example, if the consumer consistently goes to the grocery store to buy avocados, tortillas, and salsa, there is a high probability they would be interested in dining at Chipotle, Qdoba, or Taco Bell explains Mike Dadlani, vice president of media and partnerships at Ibotta. The data also analyzes grocery store purchases and determines which consumers have a higher propensity to dine at a Mexican restaurant. The audience segments for programmatic targeting can be used across a variety of demand-side platforms (DSPs) and data management providers (DMPs) such as Google and LiveRamp. “When you pair the data, it allows marketers to get a lot more creative,” Dadlani said. Historically, consumer product goods companies, retailers and restaurants needed to choose between two types of data -- either location or purchase. The “unique” partnership aims to help advertisers further personalize the experience for consumer based on what they buy, where they buy it, and when they make the purchase, explains Glen Straub, vice president at Factual.  Join the Factual team

OpenGov fall festival focuses on powering more effective government - When the fire hit, Galbraith had never used OpenGov Stories – a solution that helps governments more effectively share information with their communities and across their organizations using easy-to-use web pages that combine data, images, maps, videos, and text - to disseminate recovery information to Shasta County and Redding residents. She had to learn how to use the platform under extreme pressure, taking care to provide as much information to the public as possible while also acting as a sort of gatekeeper to guard against misinformation. In 48 hours over a weekend, Galbraith and a tiger team of OpenGov employees were able to post 15 stories and host one virtual town hall. In total, the city was able to respond to 106 questions from citizens. In the first two days, over 30,000 residents visited the site. After the immediate threat of the fire had dissipated, the platform became a one-stop shop for recovery and rebuilding information. Join the OpenGov team
