In the current economic climate, securing investments requires something special. Wedio, the peer-to-peer camera renting community, has secured €1.25 million in their seed investment round.

Early-stage venture funds lead the round

The investment primarily comes from two Danish venture capital firms, VF Venture and Founderment. In addition, Wedio raised over €150k via a crowdfunding campaign on the platform, Wefunder. With fresh capital of €450k, this brings the total seed round to €1.25 million. Since the company's founding in 2018, it has experienced rapid growth and now plans to expand its community to other European markets.

Daniel Sand, co-founder & CEO of Wedio, explains:

From growth to profit

It all started with the simple idea of making professional film equipment more accessible by allowing ambitious content creators to rent and lend securely to each other. Today, Wedio helps over 100,000 monthly content creators from across Europe to become better at producing content, and they have achieved an average annual revenue growth of 180% between 2019 and 2022. With the new capital injection, the company expects to become profitable within the next 12 months.

"There is a huge potential in the sharing economy concept, and our market has been global from day one, which is why we have focused on top-line growth until now. We have now built a solid foundation that enables us to expand into more countries with the new capital and at the same time shift our focus towards our bottom line. The goal is to become profitable within the next 12 months," explains Daniel.

Huge potential in the sharing concept

The video format is flourishing on all the new and popular platforms, and according to Forbes, every business will soon be a media company. It is estimated that there are over 50 million active content creators worldwide, who are in need of equipment. The industry generates approximately $152 billion annually, and Fortune Business Insights has projected a CAGR growth of 13% in the global media and entertainment industry from 2018 to 2026.
