The team behind Tevent aims to create dynamic, engaging, and sustainable virtual events to build a sociable and connected future through its interactive platform.

Tevent, a technology platform for virtual events, has raised US$ 2 million (£ 1.5 Million) throughout its series of seed funding rounds to support its product development. The company secured significant financial backing from leading Silicon Valley investors, including Leslie Stretch CEO at Medallia, Co-Founder of MeshDynamics.io; Rory Cameron EVP at Medallia; Jimmy Duan CCO at Medallia; Shreesha Ramdas, Co-Founder of Strikedeck; and Nathalie Scardino SVP at Salesforce.

The company will use the investment to scale its platform to meet soaring demand and to double down on product development speed by focusing on serving particular use cases and more niche segments and developing a mobile app and a desktop app. The funding would also allow Tevent to continue to innovate with impressive features such as fun app integrations, multicast, APIs, and automation.

Rising inclination toward virtual events globally and the emergence of live streaming are factors driving the demand for virtual event software. Virtual events have gained popularity majorly since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Spurred by lockdowns, organizations have resorted to conducting virtual events. It has also been noticed that 90% of companies still consider hosting virtual events despite permitted live events. In fact, according to Verified Market Research, the Global Virtual Event Platform Market size was valued at USD 9.03 Billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 22.75 Billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 12.24% from 2021 to 2028.

Ahmed Amer, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Tevent, remarks, “We are on a mission to make connections engaging, accessible, and sustainable. Tevent gives you the tools to create engaging virtual events that facilitate meaningful interactions and lasting connections. We are working towards making remote a viable alternative and building a sociable, sustainable and connected future.”

Virtual events made easy, engaging, affordable, and fun

Tevent’s goal is to make virtual platforms not just a viable option but an exciting one. It makes engaging virtual gatherings disruptively accessible, frictionless, and fun. Using the platform, users can host webinars and build a community around their brand in a few clicks. It is accessible that anyone can set up events with no technical knowledge required– one-click stock assets and frictionless registration. It is also flexible, transparent, and affordable, as all features are included even in their free plan.

It is also designed to bring back the sociability, excitement, and spontaneity that were taken for granted in physical events. Attendees can navigate a living, vibrant space with customisable session formats and stay connected with a fully-fledged social networking layer for group chats, meetings, and more. It has a feature called “Spaces,” a permanent, feature-packed hub to bring a community together. It offers a deeply integrated social media-style networking like Linkedin where you can schedule meetings, add contacts, create group chats and calls on the fly, send GIFS, and much more.

The platform is also super engaging, with a people-first design that gives an unmatched sense of life and spontaneity, making virtual fun and natural, not an awkward chore. It has customisable room layouts enabling a multitude of formats taken for granted with physical events.
