VENTURE BEAT - May 2 - Skout has acquired Nixter, a small startup with an app that helps people find nightclubs. Together, they are launching NightLifeGraph.com aimed at helping nightclub promoters sell tickets and manage their guest lists. Skout has been profitable for the past six months and is adding 1.5M new users each month. Skout's users are young urban dwellers looking for something to do and someone to do it with. Nixter was founded in 2008 by two pairs of brothers who were working as nightclub promoters. NightLifeGraph.com is free for nightclubs and makes money by charging consumers: For instance, it tacks a $1.54 surcharge onto a $10 ticket. Location-based advertising could be another source of revenue.
