CreatorUp Closes $5Million Series A Led By New Markets To Accelerate The Global Growth Of Its Groundbreaking Video Marketplace

Sep 22, 2021

Share On the heels of the launch of its innovative video marketplace and its creator network, CreatorUp has just closed on a $5M Series A investment. New Markets Venture Partners, an investor that scales transformative technology companies that improve educational outcomes, led the round with follow-ons from existing investors Metavallon, LearnStart / LearnCapital and Achieve Partners. Funds will be used to scale CreatorUp’s platform that helps organizations, large or small, meet their fast-growing needs for creating high-quality video, live-streams, and virtual reality content. Video can play many roles for an organization – as a means of communicating with constituents, imparting knowledge, digital learning, telling a story, and evoking emotion.
