We’re pleased to announce that Whova is a winner of the MetroConnect Prize!
Awarded as one of the 15 companies selected among 73 companies, Whova is proud to receive a $10,000 grant to aid our international business ventures.
About the MetroConnect Prize Program
The MetroConnect Prize is a program of the World Trade Center San Diego designed to help San Diego companies accelerate their global growth. Judges evaluated the companies under several criteria, including strong potential for growth from increased international exports or foreign investment. With this award, companies such as Whova will be able to further extend the reach of their business around the world.
Whova’s Potential Global Growth was Recognized
While we haven’t initiated intensive PR or marketing for globalization quite yet, we’re glad to already have an excellent starting point. 35% of the 3000+ events we’ve supported have been held in 85 other countries including the UK, Canada, Australia, India, China, and more. Our accomplishments can be attributed to providing an excellent product (the Whova app!) that perpetuates positive word-of-mouth. These accomplishments give us a solid foundation to build off of.
Whova is Further Accelerating Global Reach
The Whova app already has great features meant for globalization. With the MetroConnect Prize, we’ll be able to improve them to further serve our customers around the world.
- Perfecting Language Support: In addition to allowing event organizers to upload event-specific information in their own language, we will further support localization of user interface.
- Integrating International Social Media: We will improve the current local social media outlets so you can integrate your social network of choice (WeChat, Kakao, etc).
- Expanding Customer Support: We will expand our customer success team to mitigate the challenges in providing quick customer service to the events on the other side of the world, so we can provide you with top-notch service.
We’d like to thank World Trade Center San Diego and the MetroConnect program for giving us an opportunity to further accelerate our global growth and support more events globally. We will work to localize our product and provide the same quality service around the world!
