Live streaming and webinars – Hopin acquires Streamyard

The popular online events platform wants to grow fast, and in less than a year of existence it has already reached a valuation of $2.1 billion.

Part of this strategy is the acquisition of StreamYard, which is what is unanimously considered the best platform for live social broadcasting.


This acquisition will combine Streamyard’s high quality video production with Hopin‘s complete end-to-end live event experience, resulting in Hopin users being able to create events of the highest caliber, in every aspect of the experience.

For the time being, both Streamyard and Hopin users will continue to use the services as they always have.

But in the near future a convergence of the two services is planned with the aim of providing a comprehensive proposition in online events and live streaming.
