Hopin a meeting app in the time of Corona





Hopin is an online events platform where you can create engaging virtual events that connect people around the world.


Results? High attendance rates, low dropout rates, and happy attendance.


Whether you're hosting a live training workshop, bringing your company's remote team together, or launching a large-scale digital conference, it's easy to create it all with Hopin's proven to give you an engaging experience for hundreds of thousands of people.


Something was missing from the virtual events. And the lack of realization of the event, this is the problem that Hopin solves.


The goal is to give organizers the ability to recreate the in-person event experience as closely as possible, but online and all in one place. Whether through the website, tablet or mobile app.









Organizers can achieve the same goals as their offline events by customizing their Hopin to suit requirements, whether it's a 50-person recruiting event, a 500-person meeting, or an annual 50,000-person conference. Hopin is built with the knowledge that every event is unique.


#Johnny Boufarhat raised donations to help launch the video conferencing app Hopin last March after Britain entered its first lockdown and its main streets and businesses were forced to close.




Boufarhat started the idea in London, in 2018, after he was left bedridden due to a mysterious illness, so he started working on programming the program, which allows conferences to be broadcast live over the Internet, allowing employees to communicate remotely and communicate via video calls. Since its launch last year, its user base has jumped to more than 5 million users, giving it a valuation of £4.1 billion ($5.80 billion).





The high value of the company left Boufarhat with a net worth of 1.5 billion pounds (equivalent to 2.12 billion dollars), to rank 113 in the "Sunday Times" list of the wealthy, the sum of the richest individuals in Britain.


Boufarhat was born in Sydney after his parents moved to Australia from Lebanon during the 1975-1990 civil war. The family then moved to Los Angeles and then Dubai before Bou Farhat traveled to Britain to study mechanical engineering. While studying, Bou Farhat developed an app that gives students discounts at restaurants.


Boufarhat currently lives in Barcelona with his fiancée, who works with him. It should be noted that the company does not have offices, and most of its 500 employees are located in the United States and the United Kingdom.
