Our portfolio company Cocouz Oy Ltd. has recently finalized its 300kEUR seed financing round with a group of angel investors. The company is now taking its Meetingpackage.com meeting bookings service to the UK market.
Meetingpackage.com was first launched in Finland under the name Kokouspaketit.com. The service was successfully
tested and further developed in the Finnish market since 2013.
Says Joonas Ahola, CEO and co-founder of the Meetingpackage.com
service: “I used to run an event management and catering company for eight
years, and learned just how cumbersome and time consuming it was to deal with
requests and proposals. The industry lacked a simple, transparent and automated
There were plenty of services that listed venues but without
transparent information on pricing and availability. Ahola and his colleagues
decided to leverage their experience from the events industry and developed
Meetingpackage.com that first launched in Finland as Kokouspaketit.com. The service matches
meeting organizers and venue providers by offering packages that cover the
venue, catering and technical equipment. The transparently constructed packages
help both meeting organizers and the venue providers skip the proposals hassle
and save a lot of time and effort.
“Based on the good experiences and customer feedback in
Finland, we are now ready to start marketing Meetingpackage.com in the UK”,
Joonas Ahola says. “It will integrate with the reservation systems of hotel
chains, and the availability of meeting packages will be visible to customers
in real time”, he continues.
We wish Meetingpackage.com
the best of success in conquering the UK market!
