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.
For Seedcamp Partner Tom Wilson, "the stars just perfectly aligned” when they met founder Johnny Boufarhat. Seedcamp love backing founders building products that genuinely change the way we interact which is what Hopin has done by replicating the experience of offline events with for example booths and networking breaks.
