We’re happy to be in the Batch 19
We are excited to announce that EventXtra has become part of the 500 Startups Family last week for their Batch 19 program in Mountain View.
Joining 500 Startups will allow us accelerating improvements of our service. With 500 Startups expertise, infrastructure and network, hopefully, we will be able to improve our product and make it more powerful for our customers.
What is 500 Startups?
500 Startups is an early-stage startup program that invests in founders and accelerates growth and marketing. Their original plan was to invest in 500 companies. They’ve exceeded that goal by providing support to more than 1,700 tech startups since 2010. Companies invested by 500 Startups include Credit Karma, Grab, Intercom, Udemy, and Twilio.
Diversity in 500 Startups
This year, 500 Startups has specialized tracks in Health, Fintech, B2B and Fashion & Beauty. In Batch 19 in particular, it has again running tracks in B2B and Fashion & Beauty. EventXtra is happy to be one of the B2B companies in this batch.
In Batch 19, the diversity of companies remains strong. 49% of the companies are international and we are excited to be the only representative from Hong Kong. 29% of the companies have at least one female founder, whereas 22% of the companies have a black or LatinX founder.
Again, thank you for your support!
Joining 500 Startups is an exciting news to all of us. We’d like to thank you so much to everyone who has supported us along the way. We will continue to strive for our best to better every part of our product.
