Events management startup raises CHF 1.7 million


Based in Zurich, evenito offers an all-in-one event management software to more than 200 customers in Europe. The tech startup raised CHF 1.7 million in its first financing round to fuel its growth and product expansion. Multiple private investors contributed to the round.


Founded in 2016, the marketing tech platform evenito offers an integrated end-to-end solution used by event managers to streamline the entire event experience. The solution has disrupted the industry, providing an easy-to-use interface and reducing administrative overhead typically associated with organising an event, empowering event specialists to focus on delivering more value in the events they host. Event managers use the tool to plan, organise and deliver events of any complexity; from small 50 people events to complex conferences with over 2,000 attendees.

Renowned customers

The company serves more than 200 customers with clients, including international brands such as Oracle, Swiss Life, Breitling, Huawei, DZ Bank, Swiss Economic Forum, and Allergan. Expanding beyond Switzerland and Germany, the company is now on the verge of entering the United Kingdom market.

“We are excited to open our third evenito office this February in London. Without home advantage and in a market environment where we directly compete with large international players is a great opportunity to prove our capabilities further and lay the groundwork for global expansion,” said Jodok Betschart, co-founder and co-CEO of evenito.

Global expansion

A further accomplishment was the closing of the first round, raising CHF 1.7 miilion from multiple investors. The company will use the funds to accelerate its further international expansion and execute a disruptive new product update.

“We want to change the way professional events are being organized today. Our vision is to empower event organizers who want to create more impactful events by giving them the tools to drastically reduce the organisational effort involved in organising an event. This way, there’s more focus on the creative aspects of delivering a sustainable event experience and creating lasting human connections.” says Nicolas Berchten, evenito’s co-founder and co-CEO.
