The story begins with Agu, who needed to create an explainer video for his previous startup. He noticed that the only way was to have $1500-$2000 to spend with a video creation agency, or to learn how to create videos himself with AfterEffects or Flash, which would take hundreds of hours.
That day he decided to create Wideo, which would provide businesses of all types and sizes with access to the most powerful way of communication: video.
The main idea was to build an easy-to-use and affordable tool for working online, where you could create videos from scratch or by editing templates. “We want to make this as easy as editing a PowerPoint or a Word document.”
After a lot of work and help from our friends and investors (including 500 Startups, NXTPLabs, and South Ventures), we launched Wideo globally from Silicon Valley in 2012.
We are committed to providing businesses, startups, internal communication departments, educators, and students with the opportunity to boost their marketing actions, presentations, communications, and learning content through the use of video.

Our work culture
This also allowed us to focus, working more quickly and efficiently, avoiding commutes, having fewer meetings, and having more time for our families, sports, and hobbies.
We are all flexible when it comes to work hours, and work based on objectives, self-management, and trust in one other.
We focus our daily work on our users’ needs, and we try to keep in touch with what they want in order to provide a better, evolving product.
We believe, even in this technological, global, automated world, that each user’s question or comment deserves human attention and to be attended one at a time.
We don’t pretend to be a different company than we are. We have strengths and weaknesses. When there is a problem, we take full responsibility for it, ask for apologizes, and try to fix it as soon as possible.
We think that time is the most valuable thing humans have. We try hard to develop better tools that allow you to save time so that you have more of it in your personal life.
We love Wideo, but we think of it as a way to give our team, families, friends, and users a shortcut to happiness. That’s why (among other things) we don’t work on weekends or on national holidays dates.
We like to provide our little contribution with special plans for educational institutions, teachers, students, and non-profit organizations.
