Through its platform, attendees can learn, interact, and connect with people from anywhere in the world. With Hopin, anyone can create live virtual, hybrid and in-person events. The company acquired StreamYard, a video streaming studio, in 2020, and acquired Streamable, jamm as well as Boomset and Attendify in 2021. Since the beginning of 2020, Hopin has scaled from six to more than 800+ employees in 47 countries and grown from a few hundred event creators using its platform to more than 100,000 organizations as well as millions of attendees showing up for events each month.
