We are happy to announce that Hippo Video has secured $8 million in a recent funding round led by Dallas Venture Capital (DVC) with participation from Alpha Wave Incubation, KAE Capital, and Exfinity Venture Partners.
This remarkable show of faith is a tremendous endorsement of the increasingly widespread use of video within the business world. Even Gartner has recognized videos as a must-have tool within the sales tech stack for pipeline growth, which only serves to support this further.
What does this funding mean for Hippo Video?
This influx of capital and recognition for our work and vision is a major milestone on Hippo Video’s journey to revolutionize how businesses use videos in their sales activities. We are ready to use this investment to reach out to more companies and offer them comprehensive features that simplify the challenge of creating scalable videos with minimal effort and maximum impact. Our goal is to help organizations drive better responses, engagement, and return on investment from every video they produce. We are committed to making sure businesses get the most out of their video content, so they can realize all the potential it has to offer.
And to top it all off, this will also support our rapid expansion across the United States, propelling us forward in the ever-growing field of video messaging.
Hippo Video recognizes a critical pain point within businesses
In recent times, Hippo Video has found that businesses are more open to using videos; however, they are selectively using it as they find it time consuming and repetitive.
“Businesses realize that video is a more impactful medium to establish better relationships that turn prospects into customers – but they have been unable to capture its full potential in the sales process,” said Karthi Mariappan, co-founder and CEO of Hippo Video. “By humanizing conversations with hyper-personalized, interactive videos, and enabling sales teams to distribute custom videos at scale, Hippo Video helps sales teams increase the pipeline and engagement which translates into higher win rates and revenue. This new capital will help us reach more companies in need of automated video technology to help them stand out among their prospects.”
