The Wall Street Journal and The New York Daily News Earning Revenue Thanks to Ashton Kutcher

In an interview with Beet.tv today, Russell D’Souza, a co-founder of New York-based SeatGeek.com, explains that the partnerships it has in place with publishers like The Wall Street Journal and The New York Daily News are helping those companies earn a good chunk of revenue.

SeatGeek sells tickets to sporting events and concerts, but unlike other ticket marketplaces, uses analytics to find the best possible deals from across the web and bundle them all in one place. The site then places links next to game breakdowns on its partners websites and if the user purchases a ticket, the publisher gets a cut of the sale.

Now you’re asking yourself, “What does that have to do with Ashton Kutcher?” Well, as the Times’ piece on Kutcher’s startup savvy explains, the guy knows tech. So naturally he’s an investor in SeatGeek.

SeatGeek seems like a pretty cool idea, which makes it a little harder to hate Kutcher. But if you Google “Ashton Kutcher trucker hat” your hate will instantly be brought back up to par.
