Today I’m so excited to announce that Eventtus has been acquired by Bevy! Bevy is focused on enabling businesses to build community and the acquisition allows for us to meet attendees where they are at and how they prefer to experience events. We’re very excited to be joining forces with Bevy.
As my co-founder, Nihal, and I attended entrepreneurship events, we found it hard to recognize and connect with our fellow attendees. We agreed this was a problem we wanted to help solve. We founded Eventtus in 2012 to mobilize events through event planning, networking, and ticketing functionalities within a mobile app.
Startup Grind and CMX Summit, two conferences organized by Bevy, have been our customers for the past four years. Derek Andersen is the CEO of both Bevy and Startup Grind, and we met during the Startup Grind global conference last year.
The Bevy team knows Eventtus well and has been using the app and other Eventtus products over the past four years, which was a great testimonial to the product. When we met, Derek and I started talking about the industry and partnership opportunities. One thing led to the other, and it was clear that our two organizations are very similar; same values, company culture, and products that complement each other. Together, we can serve our clients better and have a unique offering to events and communities.
We are so excited to take this next step alongside Bevy, and further both of our missions to ease the inconveniences of event organizers and attendees, all while helping organizations to build, grow, and scale their communities through virtual, hybrid, and in-person event experiences.
By combining our tech stacks with Bevy, customers will experience benefits like:
- A white-labeled community event engine to scale your programs
- Registration and ticketing that is customizable and fully integrated
- Networking powered by a matchmaking algorithm
- Interactive sessions that include polls, Q&A, and reactions
As I look towards our future as part of the Bevy family, I think about our shared vision. We knew we’d be a good fit for each other because our core values are well aligned, and we share in our enthusiasm for building communities and removing the barriers to relationship-building and fellowship. When we think about the product that will result from our partnership, we want to be the sole hub for community and events data in the business world.
I’m so excited to work with Derek and all of the incredible people at Bevy to make this vision a reality. All of the Eventtus team will be joining Bevy. Nihal and I are joining Bevy’s leadership team. We are going to lead Bevy’s efforts to enhance in-person and hybrid events and integrate the products. I will be VP of Innovation; to support product and business growth across all functions and departments. Nihal will be Director of Product Management and will be responsible for growing Bevy’s products for in-person, hybrid, and virtual events.
A big thank-you to our entire Eventtus team, our customers, our investors, and those who have supported us. We’re looking forward to being able to accelerate the development of Bevy’s core functionality and provide the added layer of a mobile event app experience to their current suite of products. We’ll also be able to work with them to deliver an even stronger customer experience across virtual, hybrid, and in-person events of all kinds.
