We’re delighted to announce that OnePlan has raised a $3.8M Series A financing from UK and US investors. The funding round is led by Pembroke VCT and Eppes Creek Ventures, a consortium of leading investors from the fields of Sports, Finance, Music and Entertainment.
OnePlan launched in July 2019 with a mission to simplify and improve how events and venues are planned. For too long in our earlier careers we had experienced the problem that we wanted to solve: planning events was inefficient. For teams of all sizes, it can be costly and too time consuming, with non-specialist map, spreadsheet and presentation tools used, and plans sent via email resulting in a version control nightmare. We created OnePlan to radically change this.
Unlocking Operational and Commercial Value
Through our team’s extensive experience working on major events – including six Olympic and Paralympic Games, festivals, corporate events and more – we’ve created a real-time, collaborative SaaS platform that is the single source of truth for event teams.
OnePlan simplifies event planning. For event producers, OnePlan streamlines the design and production process through the world’s best selection of 2D, 3D, satellite and aerial maps, instant collaboration and sharing with stakeholders, and easy procurement with suppliers.
And for venue owners, our Venue Twin solution unlocks huge operational and commercial benefits through a hyper-realistic and fully interactive digital twin of any stadium, arena or venue. The benefits span multiple departments of an organisation – the Operations team can easily place and move infrastructure, signage and more, whilst the Commercial team can unlock new value by showing advertisers how branding will look, and improving the fan experience.
In the last two years over 2,000 events in 50 countries have used OnePlan. From local town and government events to major festivals. From International Federations, including our ground-breaking partnership with World Triathlon, to the NBA and English Premier League’s biggest clubs, we’ve seen OnePlan used in awesome ways. Our customers make OnePlan what it is – we design and build the platform based on feedback, always striving to simplify and improve their planning needs. To our customers today, we say a big thank you for being part of our journey so far, and we look forward to continue being of service to you to help you create safe and successful events.
Simplifying Event and Venue Planning
The funding we’re announcing today will enable us to expand the team to help us deliver on our roadmap in three key areas: product development, accelerated growth, and to scale internationally. As a real-time, collaborative SaaS platform, OnePlan can be used by event organisers in any market, and we aim to scale our innovative solution to reach and help customers in new markets. And as we grow we’ll stay true to our core purpose: to simplify and improve event and venue planning, for people and teams in any industry.
For anyone who’d like to join our mission, we’d love to hear from you. Our open roles are here.
We’re excited to start the next leg of our journey with an amazing team of investors who share our vision for OnePlan. And above all, we’re passionate about continuing to help our customers create amazing events in a simpler and more efficient way.
