Melbourne-founded AmazingCo, a startup whose platform allows users to plan special events and outings online, has raised $2.3 million in a funding round led by Rampersand VC.
Australian startup Venue Insider provides venue listings complete with virtual tours to help event planners go about their work quicker.
AmazingCo allows users to plan an event, matches them with trusted providers, and then has its concierges manage logistics to ensure it runs smoothly.
Aside from, well, event planners, most people can think of nothing worse than spending weeks putting together the dozen different elements required to hold the perfect party. The biggest problem is usually that there’s too much choice and too much research to do to ensure you’re getting the best deal. MyCatering aims to fix that.
