Hopin Receives Investment from LinkedIn


Hopin, a London, UK-based virtual and hybrid experiences platform, received an investment from LinkedIn via a Series C secondary round.

Hopin and LinkedIn plan to collaborate to create new opportunities for event organizers.

The amount of the deal was not disclosed. This follows Hopin’s $400m in Series C funding round in March 2021 co-led by new investors Andreessen Horowitz and General Catalyst, and existing investor IVP, with participation from returning investors Coatue, DFJ Growth, Northzone, Salesforce Ventures and Tiger Global. Previously, Hopin raised $125m Series B in funding announced in November 2020. Since February of last year, Hopin has raised more than $565m.

The company will use this capital to continue investing in the development of its platform technologies in areas such as video and mobile.

Through its platforms, attendees can learn, interact, and connect with people from anywhere in the world.
