My name is Julia, and I'm a web developer based in San Francisco. I've always dreamed of starting my own business, so I decided to take the leap in 2017. I left Google and started Kapwing with a friend. In the first project we worked on, I was trying to make simple video edits to a promotional video for Facebook, and just doing something like adding text was SO difficult -- I had to buy and figure out how to use Adobe Premiere, which was slow and a terrible experience. So, I stopped working on that project and switched to building a better, more trustworthy online video editing suite. Kapwing started with just one tool - the meme maker - and I added new tools as my users asked me for them: something for resizing videos, trimming and cropping, converting, combining clips, etc. Now we have a powerful video studio designed for entrepreneurs, creative professionals, artists, students, nonprofits, and any other creator. We've grown the product by telling the story of our journey on the Kapwing blog!
