It's official - virtual events are here to stay. It's against this backdrop that Zuddl has raised a $13.35 million Series A to make them easier to host, simpler to customize and, hopefully, more engaging.
- This round was led by Alpha Wave and Qualcomm Ventures, and backed by GrowX Ventures, Waveform Ventures and a number of angels. Prior to this, it had raised a $2 million seed round in October of 2020
- Zuddl was built with flexibility/customizability in mind. Companies can use the platform to create a virtual venue as per their needs, leveraging customizable backgrounds/clickable hot zones to give the interface some semblance of a physical place.
- The platform simplifies the complexities of hosting live stages. Hosts can invite speakers to go ‘backstage’, where they can chat privately, do A/V tests etc. before they go ‘live’.
- Zuddl also elevates the attendee experience by facilitating activities and spaces that drive engagement, such as Q&A/polling system, and even allowing audience members to be invited onto the stage.
