Eventifier, the Startup Centre backed Bangalore based startup has raised a fresh round of $500,000 in a seed round from Accel Partners and KAE Capital. The story reported by TC further states that the financing will be used to hire data scientists and beef up the sales and marketing efforts to carve out a position in an already-wide field of event-planning startups that include Eventbrite, Conferize, Epilogger and Doubledutch.
Founded by Jazeel Ferry, Nazim Zeeshan and Mohammed Saud, the Bangalore based startup is a site that archives all the data such as pictures, videos, slides, tweets related to a specific event at one place. The information is stocked and presented in a visually appealing form. So in other words, you need not wait for the event organizers to upload pics on Facebook, videos on YouTube, slides on SlideShare and so on and so forth.
Earlier in the month of April, the startup had raised an undisclosed amount of funding from KAE Capital. The idea then was to tap the huge event market waiting for Eventifier. At that time Eventifier was driving 17,000 unique visitors a month and had archived more than 1000 events.
The numbers have increased since then and today the startup has archived 2,000 events across the world including customers such as Pearson, UBM, Clinton Foundation, Twitter, NASA and the WWW Conference. “This seed round is definitely a great milestone for the Eventifier team. We look forward to building Eventifier into the largest event archiving platform in the world,” shared Jazeel while talking to TC.
Definitely, the startup has come a long way from building an app related to stock market by SMS integration to building a global product and shipping from India.
