HELSINKI, October 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Finnish startup ClipMe, an early mover in the collaborative video space, closes a seed round investment from a syndicate of angel investors. ClipMe offers new ways to create and share moments with friends through 15-second collaborative videos. A user can start a video, invite friends to continue recording it and the collaborative video can be shared anywhere on the web. In February, ClipMe launched as a beta on iOS and the startup has since focused on customer development and user feedback in order to identify user needs. The outcome is a freshly re-designed ClipMe and an expansion to Android (beta) and Windows Phone. Creating videos with friends is the essence of the service and our user research reveals the presence of a circle of friends on ClipMe is essential to encouraging collaborative video creation. So in the new app, a user can start a video from the home page and invite friends to add a clip, or alternatively, a user can go to a friend's profile and start a video from there. Thus making it easier to start creating videos together. Following months of bootstrapping, ClipMe has completed a seed round with Vidalico, Nestholma and Eastwings participating in the round. ClipMe is also supported by the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation - TEKES. ClipMe is gaining user traction in the Nordics and has attracted popular youth idols including the most popular Finnish hip-hop rapper and candidate for social media person of the year 2014 in Finland, Musta Barbaari; rising music pop band Satin Circus; and a few popular Vloggers. With the updated product, the company is aiming high and is ready to be the next global phenomenon out of Finland. About ClipMe Oy ClipMe Oy was founded in 2013 by a diverse team and…
