Challenge

Duolingo Events offer language-focused meetups of various formats and fluency levels in cities all around the world. Learning a language is inherently social, and by having community events in real life, Duolingo would be able to operationalize their mission. The challenge was starting a community events program from the ground up.

They decided to begin with a vendor, Bevy, and treated it like a "beta". They needed something that would, a) Streamline all processes into one tool, b) measure and track the growth of the community, and c) protect the Duolingo brand.

Solution

Bevy allowed Duolingo to scale quickly and efficiently. The Bevy platform is the key to scaling at the rate Duolingo is. Bevy gave Duolingo the ability to pass the torch to the community’s super-members, and to empower volunteers to become leaders of the community, hosts of the events, and advocates for the company.

And now, attending a Duolingo event is as simple as selecting the city you’re in, the language you’re learning, and clicking RSVP. Duolingo’s community grew faster than any we’ve ever seen. The company built a huge, international community that seems to be growing exponentially.

Bevy is critical for our platform’s events... It's the tool that powers the entire growth of our platform.
