Event Platform Bizzabo Announces $2.5M in New Funding
8/14/2014
Bizzabo, the world's leading networking platform and event app, today announced a funding round of $2.5 million from existing and new investors. Participants include Kaedan Capital, AfterDox, the super angel Gigi Levy and new investors OurCrowd and Massa Group. Bizzabo has raised $4 million to date.

The new funding will allow the event-tech company to build on the success of its current offerings to bring new functionalities for organizers of professional events and its participants - sponsors, attendees, speakers and exhibitors. The planned rollout of a comprehensive event management platform is expected for later in 2014.

"Our investors have played a critical role in helping us build Bizzabo into a recognized market leader and we look forward to continuing our relationship with existing investors and bringing in critical insights from our new partners," said CEO and Co-Founder Eran Ben-Shushan. "Having now worked with thousands of conferences around the world, from leading corporate events, to brand name tech conferences and small meetups, we have gained an even deeper understanding as to what the meetings industry needs to become more effective and impactful. This funding will allow us to create a comprehensive and beautiful solution that addresses the key needs of the event industry. The 'New Bizzabo', which will be launched later this year, is aiming to become the go-to technology for event organizers to manage, market, outsell and maximize their events."

The funding comes on the heels of Bizzabo's recent announcement that it reached the significant growth milestone of 4,000 professional events at a rapid pace. The new investment is a testament to the enthusiasm Bizzabo's investors have in the potential for continued progress and the planned rollout of Bizzabo's new set of products.

"Bizzabo's rapid growth is a proof point for the quality of the product and strength of the company's leadership and vision," said Jon Medved, Founder & CEO of OurCrowd. "We look forward to working closely with Bizzabo as it disrupts the event industry."
