About Streamloots

New digital platforms enable creators to build audiences at scale. Whether that is playing video games or producing video content, creators can now turn their passions into livelihoods.

Streamloots' mission is to help those creators to monetize their audience directly, allowing them to make a living by doing what they love.

Born from a simple idea of viewers interacting with their favorite streamers, Streamloots’ ambition is to create new ways of entrepreneurship by helping creators become small individual corporates and change the way we will envision a "job" in the future.

To accomplish our mission, we started focusing on live-streaming gaming creators. We turn interactions with the creators into a product that they can sell: from making the creator play blindfolded or choosing the character they are going to play, to making the influencer send the viewer a dedicated video or dressing up as a superhero!

We started 2 years ago, and now, over 40,000 streamers in more than 20 different countries have increased their revenue interacting with their fans through our platform. We are funded by leading global tech investors, including Bessemer.
