● 2.75 Million weddings each year (UK & US) with an average spend of £30k - making a market size of ~£8 Billion.

Exit strategy

We plan to sell to a strategic buyer within 4 years.

Vidicrew will be very attractive to prospective buyers because of our:

Data - Millions of users crowdsourcing content.

Content - We create rich highly sought-after user generated video content.

Revenue - Healthy revenue from subscriptions.

Tech - Patented AI technology.

We take inspiration from:

Magisto (an AI tech solution, making video editing fast and simple) sold to major video hosting platform Vimeo in 2019 for £200m.

Sauce Video(UK based video collaboration app for brands), sold to technology company Oracle last year (value undisclosed).

Possible acquirers:

● Media / Events companies such as Thompson Reutors and Telephonic - Perfect for the many subsidiary businesses they own to generate video content for marketing.

● Social media planners such as Hootsuite and Buffer - They schedule social media video content - Vidicrew could be their video creation arm.

Video Hosting Platforms such as Facebook and Google (Youtube) - Who are always investing in creators and innovative ways to generate trusted user perspective content for their platforms.
