We have some exciting news to share with you. Well, if you’re reading this, you know it already, but we’d like to share it again because it is very exciting indeed.
We have raised over $2 million (£1.5 million) throughout a series of seed funding rounds to support product development. We are extremely excited to have received support and financial backing from some of Silicon Valley’s leading investors, including Leslie Stretch, CEO at Medallia & Co-Founder of MeshDynamic.io; Rory Cameron, EVP at Medallia; Jimmy Duan, CCO at Medallia; Shreesha Ramdas, Co-Founder of Strideck; and Nathalie Scardino, SVP at Salesforce.
Having shared that, we’ve been hard at work scaling the platform, listening to Tevent’s early adopters, and focusing on use cases and niche segments. There will be some more news to share on this very soon, so do keep your eyes peeled, follow us on socials, or drop by for a chat on the platform.
We have been buoyed by the encouraging response we’ve received upon sharing our news with the world. So, in the true award-ceremony spirit of the past month, we wanted to take a moment to give a shoutout to the various publications that have featured us.
FinSMEs highlighted that entrepreneurs and businesses can use Tevent to “expose their brand and thought leadership, generate leads, with engaging external-facing webinars and talks”, and that we’re preparing for a Series A round to fuel our growth.
MarTech Series featured our mission to make connections engaging, accessible, and sustainable; along with some insights on the state of the market, our growth so far, and plans for the future. We’d like to add here that we are committed to breaking down the barriers to remote gatherings.
Tech.eu shared an overview of the factors driving the demand for virtual events and said that Tevent is ‘super engaging, with a people-first design to make virtual fun and natural, not an awkward chore. It has customisable room layouts enabling a multitude of formats taken for granted with physical events.’
TechiLive noted the plan to scale with the investment and various developments that are in the pipeline including mobile and desktop applications along with app integrations, multicast, APIs, and automation.
EventMB showcased a snippet on their event tech investment tracker with an overview of the company, the investors, and the plans to scale Tevent’s growth in the United Kingdom, United States, and across Europe.
Business Travel News echoed that “Tevent was built for small and mid-size enterprises unable to access dedicated virtual event platforms due to price and technical barriers”.
UK Tech News highlighted the launch of our public beta in August 2021 and our growth so far, along with some words from Ahmed Amer, Co-Founder and CEO of Tevent, “We are working towards making remote a viable alternative and building a sociable, sustainable and connected future.”
Maddyness featured Tevent in their weekly investment news from the UK start-up ecosystem and concurred that “virtual events have gained popularity majorly since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. 90% of companies still consider hosting virtual events despite permitted live events.”
Virtual Edge also shared the news with details of Tevent’s backers and upcoming ambitions coupled with remarks from Ahmed about Tevent’s mission and goals, “Tevent gives you the tools to create engaging virtual events that facilitate meaningful interactions and lasting connections.”
Equally encouraging words of mention have featured us across many more publications. We’d loath to leave any out, so please find them here, read all they’ve said about us, and maybe give them a follow on the channel of your choice to stay up to date with more exciting news features.
If you’d like to share some of this limelight with us, we’re happy to be featured on your website too.
You can drop us a message directly from the chat on our website or by pressing 'Get Help' on the app. If you’re not interested in featuring us, but would still like to talk to us, feel free to reach out anyway, we’d love to show you around the awesomeness that is the Tevent app.
Lastly, as is our duty to inform you, you can always stay abreast of all that we’re up to on our social channels (find the links below).
It’s about time we outgrew the teething pains of current virtual and remote solutions. Let’s start making remote fun, collaborative and workable for all.
