Our Mission

We are transforming creators into powerful businesses

Supporting small businesses has been our passion and in our DNA from the start. We believe that the next economic revolution will come to life through side hustlers on social platforms like TikTok and Instagram. We want to become the technological foundation for this change and lead the way to a new generation of successful entrepreneurs.

The story untold…

  1. We started as a video shopping marketplace solving the distribution problem for small indie businesses using TikTok creators. We worked with hundreds of creators and 400+ brands producing 300+ videos with millions of views and massive engagement on TikTok.

    We were chasing a 3 sided juggernaut. Solving certain problems might not lead to a valid business. We solved a real problem for creators and brands, but the core business model was unprofitable and the buyer side was a mystery. The pivot…

  2. We learned from our personal experience and challenges that video creators manage their brand partnerships in an unorganized way through fragmented tools like email, dropbox, excels and more. We saw that all the creators were really comfortable and loving the app we built for managing the video workflows for the marketplace. We decided to open this up as a SaaS product for creators and Playback was born.
