Fun and interactive All Hands & AMAs for remote teams

Venue makes large remote meetings more fun and interactive. Companies like Shopify use Venue every day for Town Halls, Kickoffs, AMAs, and more. We’re building Venue to be a place where teams can: - Reflect their unique personality and culture. - Create a vibe that’s fun, energizing, authentic and spontaneous. - Provide a safe and inclusive space for colleagues to interact how they want to. As a result, we’re seeing higher meeting attendance, better in-meeting engagement and remote team members that feel more energized and connected post meeting! We'd love for you to try Venue at your next team-wide meeting. Let us know how we can help!

Jason Goldlist

Make digital Town Halls and AMAs awesome. Stop using Zoom for large meetings and start using Venue.live! I started my career as a business analyst at McKinsey & Company. After a quick operations tour at the Vancouver Olympic Games and an MBA at INSEAD, I worked at A Place for Mom in Seattle. I was an early employee at Wealthsimple (co-founded by Brett Huneycutt & Rudy Adler, prev. YC S10) before founding Venue. I live in Toronto with my wife Tenielle our two boys (Abe is 7, and Reuben is 4).

Why Venue?

People enjoy working remotely because it’s convenient. But often they don’t find that remote work is fun or helps them feel better connected to their team and mission.

We’re building Venue to be a place where teams can:

  • Reflect their unique personality and culture.
  • Create a vibe that’s fun, energizing, authentic and spontaneous.
  • Provide a safe and inclusive space for colleagues to interact how they want to.

As a result, we’re seeing higher meeting attendance, better in-meeting engagement and remote team members that feel more energized and connected post meeting!

🙏 Introduce us to remote companies!

We need your help! We want to speak with companies that are:

  • Remote-first or hybrid
  • Culture-obsessed
  • Run recurring 100+ person meetings (like All Hands, Town Halls, AMAs, etc)

We love speaking with leaders from People & Culture, Employee Experience, Internal Communications, Chief of Staffs, Broadcast / AV / IT teams, etc.

If this describes your company, your previous company, or someone you know, we would love to connect to share what we’ve learned and see how we can help.

Please reach out to us at founders@venue.live.
