In March 2020, Tame did a digital event suite for offline corporate events. But with the epidemic hitting, it served as a difficult pivot in providing a highly customizable virtual event platform, used primarily by companies for their sales events. The result is that it has now raised a $ 5.5m seed round, a big round for its native Denmark, led by VF Venture (The Danish Growth Fund), with byFounders and three major angels: Mikkel Lolholt (CTO & Co-) Founder, Planday); Sune Alstrup (former CEO and co-founder, The Eye Tribe); And Ulrich Lehrskov Schmidt.
The investment will be used on a scale of 20 to 60 new employees in Copenhagen, London and Krakow; Expansion in the UK, and an increase in revenue.
Founder Jasenko Haddick, CEO and co-founder, said that virtual revenue has increased “by 700% last year. No sales. No marketing. Organized. So, you see a huge opportunity. Is and is aggressively expanding to position itself as the market leader. “
VF Venture partner Jacob Bratting Pedersen said: “At VF Venture, we want to help develop and drive innovation. The Corona crisis has brought digital momentum with it, and Danish IT entrepreneurs here have the opportunity to seize that agenda and bring Danish technology and expertise to the global market. Tame is a very good example of this. TAME has a lot of potential to create a strong, global business for growth and jobs gains in Denmark. “
Hadzik himself is already a success story – he eventually made it to the tech industry after arriving in Denmark as a child refugee from war-torn Bosnia during the Yugoslavian Civil War.
But the mistake is not for a hop. Haddick told me: “We are not interested in discharging ClearTips as a customer or big trade fairs. We want to focus only on the venture companies that we sell to the marketing department or the human resources department. “
