Virtual event startup Hubilo raises $4.5 Mn in seed round led by Lightspeed Venture Partners
Hubilo, the San Francisco-based global virtual events platform, on Monday said it has raised $4.5 million in a seed round led by Lightspeed Venture Partners. The round also saw participation from Jonathan Boutelle (Co-founder, Slideshare); Abhinash Tripathy (CEO, Helpshift); Nishant Rao (ex-CEO, LinkedIn India); and Girish Mathrubootham (Co-founder and CEO, Freshworks).
Hubilo is building a “system of record” for virtual events. While it offers gamified experiences to increase attendee engagement, on the other end, it offers deep integrations with platforms, including Marketo and Salesforce, to provide actionable insights to organisers and their sponsors who can finally prove ROI from their event-related budgets.
Vaibhav Jain, Founder and CEO, Hubilo, said, “Our vision is to build the world’s smartest platform for virtual events that brings experience + intelligence together. While the revenue growth has been phenomenal, what excites us most is re-imagining and leading the marketing stack that will emerge around virtual events, and unlocking massive value for key stakeholders such as CMOs, event organisers, and sponsors."
