The video collaboration platform enabling brands and organisations to harness the wealth of video content created by their fans and employees
Founder: Emily Forbes
Founded: January 2014
Returning for the second year in a row is Seenit, the online video collaboration platform that allows brands and organisations to turn employees, fans or journalists into a mobile film crew.
Attending an anti-rhino poaching protest in South Africa to make a documentary, Emily Forbes saw that the entire crowd were already documenting the entire event on their phones. She saw the potential to harness the wealth of footage captured every day and Seenit was born. Working on a pay-as-you-go and subscription service, the platform charges organisations on how many projects they run, as well as add-ons such as data analytics. Seenit is also currently developing a crowd-sourced editor network, enabling brands to buy ‘film credits’ in bundles and pay editors to quickly create content.
To date, the company has worked with more than 100 clients, with 13 yearly subscription clients including stellar names such as Benefit, The Body Shop, Morrisons, Red Bull Racing, The BBC, Crystal Palace Football, Camelot and Accenture. Having recently closed a funding round, Seenit will bolster its team with the addition of five new members in 2016, as well as focus on securing clients in the US and launching its app in more languages.
A unique concept with huge potential, be sure to keep your eyes on Seenit.
