As published by Tech Crunch – one of the most influential tech, innovation and startup media outlets in the world – InEvent has attracted an industry-changing investment.
InEvent has just received a USD 2 million investment from Storm Ventures, a VC company 100% focused on early-stage enterprise investments.
“COVID has changed the way events are being held beyond what we imagined a year ago. There is no going back to traditional events, with or without a vaccine. At Storm Ventures, we believe the team at InEvent will shape the future of events to come.” says Pascale Diaine, Principal at Storm Ventures.
Based in Atlanta, GA, the startup was founded in 2013 and is led by Pedro Góes (CEO), Mauricio Giordano (CTO) and Vinícius Neris (CRO) – all of them with a computer engineering background.
Góes and the InEvent Board of Directors will direct the USD 2M investment mainly to the area of product innovation, in addition to technology for improved hybrid event management.
Innovating since the early days
“Our dream at the time was to be part of Y Combinator, the largest and most respected startup accelerator worldwide. That’s why we pivoted.”, says Góes. In 2019, Y Combinator saw what InEvent was doing and chose the startup to be a part of it.
2021 and beyond
In 2020 alone, more than 6502 hybrid events have been hosted with the platform, resulting in +60 million streaming minutes.
“No matter if that’s in-person or virtually. The platform contributes to making any corporate event structured and customized. There are infinite possibilities for engagement, design, and interaction”, Góes wraps up.
Hybrid events will be the hottest marketing channel of 2021. Thus, companies interested in finding how to get the most from hybrid events can access more information at inevent.com .
