With brand new iOS application and releases in several European cities, Eventyard gets international presence and opens up a new Seed round for investors.
The mobile application is ready to use and gives exciting events nearby to everyone who travels a lot and looks for independent and valuable content. Thus users will not need to download different application everywhere it goes, as Eventyard works everywhere.
For one night we have number of downloads from Sofia, Lisbon, London, Berlin – cities in which there are great artists, musicians and venues who add their upcoming shows on Eventyard in order to stand out of the noise on the Internet. Up to come is Belgrade, with which we plan to take the localization to the next level by starting translations in local languages.
Eventyard helps you discover events you love. We match users’ interests with their location and give exciting upcoming events suggestions. It is the place where independent event organizers like artists, musicians or small local venues can stand out of the crowd and promote their events at a reasonable price. Thus they are finally able to reach targeted new audience and keep the conversation with their followers going.
The founders are perfect match between a visionary (“the idea guy” Kiril Velkov with strong IT and media background); a DJ with amazing network of independent event organizers (“the DJ and biz dev on board” Oleg Kabakchiev, who is a serial entrepreneur with media background); a great marketer with tons of experience (“the marketer” is Alexandra Nikolova, former Marketing VP at XS Software, one of the 30 under 30 talents in the first selection of Forbes Bulgaria and a really skilled developer (Hristiyan Nikolov – “the developer” has more than 8 years experience in wide variety of IT projects).
The team also includes a really talented designer and front-end developer (Chavdar Grudev) and ninja developer (Vasil Manolov) along with some really motivated interns, located across Europe, who love the team and the project.
Eventyard was selected in the first batch of startups funded by Eleven Startup Accelerator; and we work with them closely since day 1. In total, we raised 100,000 EUR from Eleven and we are now opening our Seed round, which will be closed till the end of this year and we invite everyone interested to join the round. We will keep the information updated on our Angel List profile.
