Swiss startup evenito, an all-in-one platform for streamlined event management, has snapped up €1.6 million in its first financing round, backed by multiple private investors. The startup will use the funds to fuel its growth beyond Switzerland and Germany to the UK, as well as developing its product.
Founded in 2016, evenito offers an integrated end-to-end solution to empower event managers to streamline the entire event experience. The innovative platform has an easy-to-use interface and reduces administrative overhead typically associated with organising an event, so that professionals can focus on delivering more value in the events they host. The tool can be used to deliver events of any complexity: from small 50 people events, to complex conferences with over 2000 attendees.
The startup currently supports 200+ customers, including international brands such as Oracle, Swiss Life, Breitling, Huawei, DZ Bank, Swiss Economic Forum, and Allergan. Expanding beyond Switzerland and Germany, the company is now on the verge of entering the UK market.
“We are excited to open our third evenito office this February in London. Without home advantage and in a market environment where we directly compete with large international players is a great opportunity to prove our capabilities further and lay the groundwork for global expansion,” said Jodok Betschart, co-founder and co-CEO of evenito.
“We want to change the way professional events are being organized today. Our vision is to empower event organizers who want to create more impactful events by giving them the tools to drastically reduce the organisational effort involved in organising an event. This way, there’s more focus on the creative aspects of delivering a sustainable event experience and creating lasting human connections.” says Nicolas Berchten, evenito’s co-founder and co-CEO.
