Downtown D.C.-based Social Tables announced on Tuesday that the company has secured $13 million in Series B funding. The round was led by QuestMark Partners, and also included Bessemer Venture Partners, Thayer Capital, Fortify Ventures and Middleland Capital — all previous Social Tables investors.
Social Tables creates event planning and management software that is used by 100,000 unique professionals across 4,300 customers, according to a press release.
“At Social Tables, we want to see a world with more successful meetings and events,” CEO Dan Berger said in a statement. “This funding enables us to tackle a broader set of industry challenges that will help us reach our vision faster.”
Founded in 2011, Social Tables has now raised a total of $22.6 million. The company currently employs around 135 in its G street HQ, and Tuesday’s press release hinted that more hiring is on the horizon. We’ve reached out to find out how many people they’re looking to hire.
Oh and those 100 community events Social Tables pledged to host with the opening of the new office? At our last visit to the space the 100 spots were almost filled — and all in far less than the allotted two years.-30-
