The biggest stories in 2017… as seen in Times Square!

Jan 2, 2018


Happy 2018! After all the amazing accomplishments that the Wibbitz team enjoyed in 2017, the bar is already set pretty high for the new year. We grew our team across three different continents (and hosted our first annual Wibbitz Fest in Greece), expanded our platform’s patented AI technology and video creation tools, partnered with over 400 leading storytellers including Forbes, New York Daily News, AMI and TheStreet, and raised $20 million in Series C funding.

To end the year with a bang, we were privileged to partner with the Associated Press to produce 2017: The Year in Stories… the first AI-powered video to be broadcasted live in Times Square on New Year’s Eve! Check out the live stream above, and watch the full video below, for one last look at the biggest stories that affected the world over the last year.

We’re always up for a challenge to continue pushing the needle forward, and already have lots of exciting plans in store – to expand into even more countries and markets, to introduce even smarter solutions for our partners’ video strategies, and to make this year even better than the last. Cheers to another year of beautiful, meaningful, and innovative video storytelling!
