San Francisco-based private financial group supports global software-as-a-service platform that aims to revolutionize the fragmented events industry.
SAN FRANCISCO, DECEMBER 2017 – The US Capital team has been engaged by Eventerprise AG (“Eventerprise”) as its exclusive financial adviser for a $5 million Series-A equity raise for the firm. The new capital will act as an extended runway for Eventerprise’s expansion milestones and revenue targets over the next 15 months, coinciding with the launch of its platform in the US, the world’s largest events market.
US Capital is a full-service private financial group headquartered in San Francisco. Through its investment bank affiliate, US Capital Global Securities, LLC, the firm provides private placement services and has wide distribution for debt and equity private placements.
Eventerprise CEO and co-founder, Götz Thümecke, said: “Since US Capital Partners operates as an investment platform, we believe they have the necessary insight into the platform model to manage our funding requirements.”
Eventerprise co-founder, Charlie Wright, said: “Using a San Francisco-based financial adviser played a significant role in the valuation of the firm, and should be seen against the backdrop of US dominance in and familiarity with the platform economy. It also follows Eventerprise’s selection out of 300 other startups for a San Francisco-based startup accelerator.”
“We are delighted to be assisting Eventerprise with its financing needs as it prepares to launch its platform in the US,” said Jeffrey Sweeney, Chairman and CEO at US Capital. “The platform revolution has yet to leave its mark on the events industry, and Eventerprise aims to be a market leader in this $565 billion industry. The opportunity to participate in Eventerprise’s $5 million preferred equity raise is now open to eligible investors through our digital investment platform at www.uscgs.com.”
Eventerprise’s Series-A round follows seed funding from several international business leaders and events industry icons, including Dr. Rajen Kilachand, Chairman of diversified multinational conglomerate, the Dodsal Group; Greg Lawless, CEO of Arena Events Group PLC; and Omar Rahman, a well-known events industry expert.
