Online events platform Hubilo secures angel funding
Ahmedabad-based events startup Hubilo Softech Pvt. Ltd has secured an undisclosed amount of angel funding from 12 investors, including Freshdesk CEO and co-founder Girish Mathrubootham, multiple media reports said.
Hubilo will use the funds to develop its technology platform and grow its sales and marketing efforts, the Business Standard reported.
The startup allows event organisers to create, promote, manage and analyse events on a single online platform. Users will get an event website, HTML emailers, social media posts and a networking platform for participants. Users can also coordinate with vendors, market the event online and track their budget.
Hubilo was founded in 2015 by engineers Vaibhav Jain and Mayank Agarwal, both of whom are alumni of Ahmedabad-based Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology. The startup was incubated under iCreate—International Centre for Entrepreneurship and Technology in February 2014.
