Hopin, a London, UK-based virtual events provider, raised $125M in Series B funding.
The round was led by existing investor IVP and new investor Tiger Global and joined by Coatue and DFJ Growth, along with returning investors Accel, Northzone, Salesforce Ventures, and Seedcamp.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to scale its platform, expand its team, and its business reach.
