At SnapStream, our mission is to help organizations harness the power of moments to change how people communicate and form deeper connections. Moments of audio and video hold the power to drive reach and impact, but extracting these moments is too hard. SnapStream makes it easy for news media, government, entertainment, and academic organizations to capture, find, and share these moments to create more persuasive stories, increase audience engagement, and turbocharge rapid response. That's why customers like Politico, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, BuzzFeed, and The White House love us.
