May 5, 2022

May 5, 2022 Start-to-finish creator economy platform Pluc.tv announced that it has raised an undisclosed amount in pre-seed funding and is joining Expert DOJO, an international early-stage start-up accelerator in Southern California. Pluc.tv will use these funds for the growth of the platform, implementing a robust go-to-market strategy for international expansion and further product development. It has successfully tested out its creator community pilots in countries like Indonesia, Nigeria and the UK, the statement said. Tamseel Hussain, Founder and CEO of Pluc.tv said “We’re very excited for this phase in the Pluc.tv journey. Our vision is to create an equal world where anyone can monetize early through storytelling and original content. Despite being bootstrapped so far our platform was being used by almost 500,000 people with creators joining in from over 22 countries. Now with Expert DOJO’s expertise in international markets, we can’t wait to take this growth curve further.”  “Pluc.tv on the other hand, believes in powering the rise of the creator middle class — aiming to enable 99.9% of creators in the world to learn, create and monetize” said  Hussain. The company was founded in 2017 and today it comprises 500,000 users and 32,000 creators with 7,000+ published stories and 120+ shows in 12 languages that have reached over 500 million people worldwide. With creators from 22 countries on its platform, including India, Indonesia, Nigeria, UK and US. Pluc.tv has approximately 200,000 monthly users who view content on its platform. It won the Silver for ‘Best Use of Online Video’ at the prestigious WAN-IFRA Awards for two consecutive years. Some of the top content categories on the platform include health, environment, gender, finance, gaming and art and culture. Pluc.tv also has its iOS and Android apps in beta testing with selected creators and will launch it for more users soon. Commenting on Pluc.tv joining Expert DOJO, Brian Mac Mahon, founder of Expert DOJO, said, “Expert DOJO is excited to bring Pluc.tv into our cohort and help them grow their business. We invested in their company because we think they fill a massive need in the market and believe they will play a huge role in the creator economy around the world. We are looking forward to joining them throughout this entire journey.” Ashish Nain
