Collecting, managing and marketing event data is a time-consuming job, with limited information available to make informed decisions. Allie Magyar founded Hubb as a solution to the problems she faced as a seasoned corporate event manager. With a scalable solution to manage events of all sizes, including some of the largest events in the world, Hubb skillfully accommodates the toughest workflows that face event organizers. In addition, Hubb’s real-world application of machine learning and AI provides data and insights to help event managers make smarter decisions around event content and improve event ROI. As the single source of truth that powers all of an event’s content, the software acts as an event’s central “Hubb.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with Five Elms Capital. This new funding will allow us to scale our business while we continue to innovate and push the industry towards data-driven decision-making. There is a great deal of momentum in the event technology space and we’re excited to lead the industry’s use of true SaaS technology for meetings and events,” said Allie Magyar, founder and CEO of Hubb.
Building upon exciting innovations such as Hubb Meetings, Hubb plans to use this new capital to better support its customers, further scale its business and develop additional event content and meeting management solutions, along with powerful business intelligence tools. The funding will also be used to hire staff in development, sales, customer support and marketing.
