If video is the new tweet, Shootsta co-founder and CTO Tim Moylan is on his way to becoming the next Jack Dorsey.
The vidtech company lets brands create their own high-quality videos, giving them a tuck and polish with a 24-hour turnaround time.
Founded in 2014 in Sydney, ASX-listed ad agency AdCorp backed the business with $1 million in 2016, but since then Shootsta’s grown without further VC funding.
The company has doubled client base over the last 12 months to more than 240 in 2019, including LinkedIn, Rio Tinto, Qantas, AirBnB, American Express Atlassian, HSBC, tech titans HP, South32 and Transgrid signed on.
While internal training videos are popular, increasingly the platform’s being used for social media communications.
Its co-founders are childhood friends who went into business together after seeing an issue with companies trying to create video at scale. Shootsta now has more than 80 staff across five global offices in Singapore, US, UK, Hong Kong and Sydney.
Startup Daily sat down with Tim Moylan for our podcast series, The Problem Solved, to talk about his business, corporate comms and storytelling.
