London-based event planning startup OnePlan has raised $5.3 million in funding from its Series A investors British venture capital Pembroke VCT and Silicon Valley-based consortium Eppes Creek Ventures. The company is currently valued at $58 million after the new round.
The investment comes on the back of the platform being chosen as the Official Supporter of GIS Mapping and Digital Twin Software for the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Every venue and surrounding area will be mapped and integrated into OnePlan's collaborative software package to make Paris safe, sustainable and digitised during the event.
The event planning software enables teams to map, plan and manage their events, together. Event organisers can visually plan with pinpoint accuracy and collaborate with colleagues, partners, broadcasters, suppliers and local authorities in real-time, establishing a single source of truth for all stakeholders.
According to the startup, its metaverse Venue Twin solution unlocks huge operational and commercial benefits through a hyper-realistic, fly-through-able digital twin of any stadium or arena.
Paul Foster, founder and CEO, OnePlan said: “It’s an enormous endorsement to have Pembroke and Eppes Creek invest again based on what they’ve seen in the nine months since their first investment.”
The platform is currently used by over 8,000 events and venues in 100+ countries, including music festivals, road events and sports organisations, including Premier League and NBA teams, Silverstone, World Triathlon and more.
