Powder
Powder is the Instagram of gaming. Through specialized tools,we let gamers import their gameplay from PC, consoles (Xbox, PS4, Switch) or mobile.We let them edit it: trimming, visual + sound effects, overlays, zoom in/out, fast/slow motion, etc. And we let them share it, to our community or outside the app: Snap, TikTok, Instagram… Share clips. Make friends. Play with them. Repeat.
Powder is a deep tech startup​. Our AI detects highlights from hours of gameplay, to help users trim and edit clips. ​It’s the engine behind our feed. Our team comprises four AI professionals, and we have several patents ranging from in-game highlights detection to emotions detection in the context of a mobile platform.
Powder is booming​. In four months, we’ve created a 60k community on Discord and Instagram. 150+ people volunteer on the project. Our open beta lasted only 2 weeks – that’s the time it took to reach TestFlight’s 10k users limit. We’ve reached 1k five-stars ratings on the US Store in 10 days. And we’re just getting started.
Powder has raised €1.8m+ from leading Silicon Valley investors who have invested at early stages in Stripe, Airbnb or Snapchat. Members of our 15-people strong team have previously worked with Zenly, Lydia, Mindie, PandaScore, Artomatix, Nike and BCG, and have raised over €10m and sold multiple companies in the past.

Context

As our lives move from the physical to the virtual​, gamers need a platform to share their digital experiences to meet and connect with peers. There are 2.5bn gamers worldwide, playing an average of 1h/day. Both numbers experience double digit growth.
Mainstream “real life” social platforms get gaming equivalents​. Twitch is the YouTube of gaming. Discord is the Slack of gaming. But no one has built the Instagram of gaming: a platform focused on game clips, i.e. short videos of one’s gameplay.
