Open We Stand Animoto

Corporate Pledge

For more than 12 years, Animoto has been the leading online video creation tool. Throughout that time, we’ve helped millions of small businesses, educators, and nonprofits stand out with video. Today we’re keeping your shifting reality in mind and making every effort to best serve your needs.  

We pledge to provide tools, resources, templates, and education to help small businesses grow while staying connected to their customers. From making it easy and affordable for businesses to share their evolving models to providing remote-learning resources to support educators pivoting to online classrooms, we remain committed to supporting our community through this difficult time and beyond.  

Letter from the CEO

We know why most of the world will remember 2020. It’s the year that challenged each and every one of us. But when the team at Animoto looks back, we want to think of 2020 as the year we went above and beyond for our staff, our customers, and our community.  

That’s why Animoto has pledged our support in the best way we know how — by keeping you connected with video. We’re committed to supporting the businesses, educators, and non-profits who rely on Animoto videos to reach and inspire others. You can rely on us to deliver the fastest and easiest free video solution for social media and beyond. Together with our team, we’re working hard to help you communicate your ideas, grow your business, and make human connections with video.  

After this is all over, when businesses open their doors, and schools welcome students back, we want to know that we did our part to empower our community and help it thrive. We’re proud to work together with GoDaddy to fulfill this mission.
