Socio, an Indianapolis-based event management platform for organizations to optimize their live events, raised $6M in Series A funding.
The round was led by High Alpha Capital with participation from Greenspring Associates. In conjunction with the funding, Mike Fitzgerald, partner at High Alpha, will join the board.
The company intends to use the funds to grow its teams at its North American headquarters in Indianapolis and EMEA office in Istanbul and accelerate development of new products to allow customers to put on conferences, trade shows, and internal and external meetings.
Led by co-founder and CEO Yarkin Sakucoglu, Socio provides a management platform that allows SMBs and enterprises to optimize their live events and facilitate interactions globally.
In addition to the raise, the company also added two new products, Lead Retrieval and Live Display, to its event management platform. Like the Event App, both products focus primarily on the in-event experience.
Customers include names such as Google, Harvard, and Pinterest along with other major enterprises, associations, and universities.
