Attendware Corporation announced today that it has raised a $1M Series A round of funding from .406 Ventures. Attendware is the fastest growing event check in and auto name tag printing software. The cash infusion will enable Attendware to expand its technology and sales ranks and accelerate the deployment of its rapidly growing onsite event management software.
Attendware is used to create a premium experience for guests at events run by membership driven organizations, such as universities and non-profit institutions. The software enables event organizers to effortlessly capture attendance data and easily report on key metrics to measure event success. Attendware also automates many of the painful and time-consuming aspects of events, such as name tags, by leveraging on-the-spot, sub one second custom name tag printing.
The product was born at Northeastern University, where co-founder Greg Skloot headed one of the university’s largest student organizations, the Entrepreneurs Club. “We had weekly events with 150+ attendees and we had no clue who our members were,” Skloot noted. “I built the initial prototype of Attendware because of the pain I experienced as an event organizer and leader of a membership-driven organization.”
Since then, Attendware adoption has skyrocketed. Attendware has checked in and auto-printed name tags for tens of thousands of attendees at events. Northeastern University has since become one of Attendware’s largest customers. “We’re extremely impressed with Attendware. It has saved us countless hours of prep work and provided the extra high-tech touch that we strive for when putting on premium events for our alumni and the university community,” said Brian Loutitt, Senior Director of Events at Northeastern University.
