DoubleDutch

San Francisco
Company size: Company at the growth stage (from 51 to 300 employees)
Industry: Event platform
At DoubleDutch, our product is more than just an event platform that provides registration and social networking — we’re tying people and data together. We get the most relevant content in front of users, regardless if they’re attending, organizing, or exhibiting at an event.

It may sound easy, but bringing mobile-first thinking, decision-driven data collection, and user-focused engagement into one intuitive platform is challenging. And we do it better than anyone else.

Much like the purpose of our product, our company culture reflects our passion for connecting humans. Whether it's our intense focus on delivering exceptional service to our clients or our dedication to giving back to our communities, our people-first approach is clear in all that we do.

DoubleDutch currently has offices in San Francisco, Phoenix, Portland, London and Amsterdam and is backed by Bessemer Ventures, Floodgate, and KKR.
