With so many online video creation tools around, Shakr has taken a broader approach by embracing two big groups from the demand and supply sides of video creation. On the one hand, Shakr provides a platform that enables After Effects designers to make great video templates, encouraging them to generate income from it. On the other hand, users can choose  from thousands of video template options and easily edit them in a web browser.

With its office in Seoul, Shakr raised $3m from investors including POSCO Venture Capital last May, followed by super angel funding from 500 Startups, as they graduated its Accelerator program as part of Batch 10.

Users can drag and drop photos or video clips into the thousands of video templates the company offers. By providing an easy way to create professional quality video, Shakr especially attracted many small businesses, including restaurants, car dealers, manufacturers, events and more, with a 40% conversion rate. When TechNode reported about Chinese female founders in tech, we used Shakr to create the video.
