Hopin was founded in 2019 and is one of the fastest growing events platforms. It started as a platform for hosting virtual events but has since expanded to hybrid and in-person. Hopin most recently raised $450M at a $7.75B valuation. Hopin has to date used its funding to make 6 acquisitions and hire just under 1000 employees.
