Veertly raises CHF 2m in seed financing round

Veertly, a Swiss-German company that has developed a flexible all-in-one platform for hybrid and online events and digital collaboration for corporates, closed a seed funding round after bootstrapping the start-up for one and a half years. The young company's customers include well-known brands, renowned universities from all over the world and numerous event agencies.

Veertly digitizes events from 20 up to 10’000 attendees and sets new standards for virtual live interactions. With the flexibility of integrating innovative collaboration tools, Veertly enables events to run efficiently and effectively: Conferences, business workshops, team events, exhibitions or even sales events can thus be carried out in a hybrid or completely virtual way. And all is hosted on servers in the EU. This all-in-one platform strategy is unique in the market.

Numerous event agencies prefer Veertly because of its customizable design and the possibility to individually integrate further applications. Among others, major events such as the Mercedes Benz Social Media Night were already held on the Veertly platform. Brands such as the unicorn Personio, the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) universities including ETH Zurich are customers too.

Today, the Veertly team counts around 20 experts, who work remotely from all over Europe to contribute to future successes of the platform. The company is headquartered in Rolle VD. The recently concluded financing round is now to be used primarily to accelerate growth by investing in the areas of sales and marketing as well as in the further development of Veertly's product innovations.
