Social Leverage portfolio company Sequel (Fund III) just raised an $8M Series A round in what’s been a particularly difficult year for fundraising.

Sequel’s low-code and no-code options allow companies to host virtual events on their own websites without having to outsource to other platforms; companies retain customers on their own platforms, which maximizes engagement. In addition, Sequel offers solutions for companies to hold short-term, recurring virtual events that can increase community engagement.

The Series A round was led by Javelin Venture Partners with additional backing from Struck Capital, Social Leverage, and Alumni Ventures. Last year, Sequel raised $2.7M bringing total funding to $10.7M. The new funds will let Sequel expand geographically and focus on customer success. You can read more on Business Insider.
