Australia-based video editing startup Clipchamp raises $9M, will open Seattle office

Clipchamp, a Brisbane, Australia-based video editing platform, today announced a $9 million investment round that will help the company open its first U.S. office in Seattle. It will also reincorporate in the U.S.

  • Founded in 2014 by former SAP employees, the startup has more than eight million users who create videos with Clipchamp’s in-browser tools. The 40-person company has enterprise customers such as Google, Deloitte, and Microsoft.
  • Seattle-based venture capital firm Tola Capital led the Series A round, which included participation from TEN13 and existing investors. Aaron Fleishman, partner at Tola Capital, will join the company’s board of directors.
  • “The proliferation of video content within companies has and continues to be exponential, whether it be from marketing, HR, or other departments,” Fleishman said in a statement. “Unlike traditional, complex video editing tools, Clipchamp offers a new paradigm of video editing that is rich with features to create high impact videos within minutes, while also easy enough for anyone to adopt and use it.”
