TAMPA, Fla. (August 9, 2017) – Florida Funders has closed a $167,000 investment in Eventplicity, a Gainesville, Florida-based company that streamlines the event booking process for restaurants. The simplified process helps restaurants generate additional sales from events.
Eventplicity CEO Bryan Edelstein started the company in 2015 after owning a restaurant and bar in Gainesville and seeing the tedious process required to book a private event.
“It’s 2017, and cars are driving themselves, yet booking a private event can still be a long and painful process,” said Edelstein. “Eventplicity offers a streamlined and automated process for the benefit of both restaurant owners and consumers.”
Restaurant owners provide photos of the event space, build a digital proposal and customize menus for events through Eventplicity’s web-based platform that integrates with the restaurant website. Meeting planners and consumers who are looking to book private events can quickly and easily find information like price and availability and book the restaurant for an event, which generates more revenue for the restaurant.
The investment from Florida Funders, which is part of a $2 million capital raise, will help Eventplicity to expand its sales and marketing department. Based in Tampa, Florida Funders is a venture capital firm with an equity crowdfunding portal that makes investing easier for accredited investors, and capital more accessible to promising early-stage Florida companies.
“Eventplicity is drastically improving an outdated service model with modern technology,” said Tom Wallace, Florida Funders’ managing general partner. “We’re very excited about Eventplicity’s continued growth throughout the country.”
