About the company

Gather Voices was established in early 2017, born from the urgent need of digital marketers to increase their ability to manage video at scale, and a desire to differentiate their organizations by deepening relationships with their constituents. Co-Founders Michael Hoffman and Joel Resnik are currently building a team of creative high-performers, centered on a culture of trust and the core values of Openness, Ambition, Customer Success and Inclusion.

Now over 100 clients strong and growing quickly, Gather Voices is entering its next phase of growth.  Backed by world-class investors, we are implementing a growth strategy that focuses on the needs of Associations and Events industries (to start). Our video solutions make it possible for organizations to deepen relationships with their constituents by creating and sharing video content with anyone anywhere. Our solutions enable a 10X increase in video production, produced 10X faster than traditional methods, resulting in a 3-5X increase in engagement.

What sets us apart?

  • Our solutions are intuitive and our vision is big.  We are creating a new category that will revolutionize the way organizations utilize video.
  • We believe that being open to new thinking will draw talent. That being ambitious will help us see the opportunity that others miss. That being engaging will delight customers. And that being simple will make our products intuitive. In a world where excellent technology is a given, where organizations' need for video is booming, where trust between people and institutions is at historic lows, we believe that being unapologetically human will create distinctiveness and rapid growth.
