Reduct.Video Raises $4 Million
In our next story of the week, video technology start-up, Reduct.Video raises $4 million to simplify video editing for businesses.
We are creating and consuming more videos now than we ever have before – and as it stands video continues to be the most consumed form of content. Where platforms such as TikTok and Netflix dominate on the consumer side, according to Reduct, video remains underutilised by businesses due to the demands of time and cost. Something that this start-up aims to simplify.
Skynamo Acquires mSeller
