Virtual is here to stay
Tevent is all about making the ‘new normal’ - normal. Once we build the means to meet, network and share from anywhere, will we go back to our old ways? After all, necessity is the mother of invention.
The story so far.
Tevent was dreamt up by childhood friends Alex and Ahmed, who had long been staying in touch and collaborating on small projects online after moving apart for university. Frustrated by uninspiring virtual events, and often excluded from physical ones, they decided to take matters into their own hands and take a wireframed design of a compelling events platform to investors. Ahmed brought a perspective on making events engaging through his work producing comedy events in London’s West End, while Alex brought a knack for design honed through creating jet turbines for Rolls-Royce.
Eight months, three employees and two lockdowns later, the pandemic has brought an inevitable future into the present. The elitist culture of physical conferencing is neither productive nor sustainable. That’s why, in both our seed rounds, not a single investment pitch was unsuccessful.
The world has had to adapt quickly to working and connecting remotely, but we’ve been doing it for over a decade. Now, we’re working hard to make sure you can too.

Some of our team.
When building the team for Tevent, location was no object. Fortunately, they enlisted the backend expertise of another schoolmate, Tim Jones, to implement a bespoke cloud architecture for handling the unique mechanisms of the platform. Then, Dr. Luana Nunes used her coding prowess to tag-team on the frontend with Alex – who is also hands-on with the codebase itself. Finally, Mohja Amer came in with a mission to communicate her belief in virtual and specifically Tevent, to the outside world. I’m writing this right now – hello.
We're working differently.
Tevent was dreamt up, designed and developed without ever being in the same room. We use online collaboration tools every day – that’s why we know them so well.
A wealth of backgrounds and experiences help us design a platform that works for all, not just a particular group.
No Tevent employee has set hours. We work because we want to and relax when we can’t.
How we've grown.
Tevent has already come a long way in just a short time - and we're only just getting started.
Founded in March 2020, by long time friends Alex and Ahmed, Tevent was an organic response to the untenability of the event landscape.
We have secured significant financial backing from leading Silicon Valley investors to support development.
Our progressive approach to work means we aren’t restricted geographically and can focus instead on hiring based on talent.
Our Investors are a diverse group of industry experts, who believe in Tevent's vision as much as we do.
