Event planning has received a massive makeover in today’s age, with technological innovation propelling it to ever-greater heights. Event planning startup BookEventz(previously called UrbanRestro) recently managed to raise a significant amount of angel funding from Mumbai Angels. Other investors-Singapore Angel Network(SGAN) and Zishaan Hayath, founder and CEO of Toppr.com, also participated in this round. BookEventz seeks to use the raised funding for technological upgradation, general expansion and marketing.
The Mumbai-based startup was founded by Shriti Chhajed and Harsh Baid in 2012. BookEventz is a comprehensive event booking platform, which seeks to be the one-stop startup for all event booking solutions. A wide variety of events can be booked-these include conferences, cocktail parties, social gatherings, weddings and birthday parties, to name a few. The booking process is extremely straightforward and occurs in a few simple steps. First, the customer chooses the kind of event which he wants to book, then the general locality where the event is held is booked, and then, details such as the time of the event, the number of guests expected, the budget range and contact details are provided. Thus, all the hassle involved in going to different venues on a word-of-mouth basis is eliminated.
Furthermore, BookEventz’s event booking platform is extremely accommodating-users can even specify a number of dates when they want their event to be held, in case for any reason they are unable to give a single date. The startup also focuses on ensuring affordability of service, and the sums which it levies are produced by an extremely transparent system, which, like the rest of the startup, emphasizes user convenience. Furthermore, BookEventz also provides general info regarding party planning, and event planning as a whole.
Present status, and the road ahead
The startup already has 2000+ venders listed across 11 cities. Currently, it serves 2000 customers per month. The recent instances of funding are likely to give its operations an overall boost. Along with the platform’s overall emphasis on customer convenience, a bright future is anticipated for the startup.
