Parmeet and Marju met each other in the autumn of 2019 and were discussing the fun aspects of their jobs. Soon they discovered the common motivational factor for a good team work and that was their team events.
However, organising a cool team event that everyone likes is a time consuming and challenging task. They realised that organising one event was taking a few hours of their productive work time and they have to do it every month. Thinking about the new activity options every month, pricing, availability, reservation and processing the invoice is also quite stressful. Later they found that it’s not only their problem but is being faced by many.
Team event plays a vital role is improving the team harmony and bonding. Especially in the post COVID world where teams are working remotely, team events have become even more special and necessary to up-bring the team vibe.
Founded in 2021 by Parmeet, a hospitality expert from India and Marju, the techstar from Estonia decided to solve this global problem. They created HopLocal to help the team managers and people operation teams in finding the right team event in just under one minute.
As the founders say – on a mission to make team events more fun and hassle-free.
