The recent financing round is a testament to our strategic direction and will help power EventBoard’s analytical insights aimed at creating a better means to solve the biggest productivity issues organizations face today.

It seems like just yesterday EventBoard raised $1.5 million in seed funding, ready to enhance the way company meetings take place. It was actually one year ago, but my sense of time has always been terrible.

Today brings more news of the same: Eventboard has closed a $6.5 million Series A round led by Greycroft Partners, with participation from Zetta Venture Partners and Origin Ventures.

“Our mission is to dramatically improve how organizations optimize the way their people, places, and workplace technologies come together. People meet everyday and with meetings becoming an increasingly bigger part of employees’ working hours, it’s important to make them as productive as possible,” EventBoard CEO Shaun Ritchie said in a statement. “The recent financing round is a testament to our strategic direction and will help power EventBoard’s analytical insights aimed at creating a better means to solve the biggest productivity issues organizations face today.”

Today, everything takes place on the cloud, that vast and unknowable space floating unseen with storage capabilities amounting to infinity. EventBoard is based around one simple idea — why can’t the productivity of workplace meetings be maximized through a series of cloud-based tools and analytics? This is exactly what EventBoard’s platform is designed to do, providing users a new-age, efficient solution to meeting planning/execution.
