Loom is a new kind of work communication tool that helps people get their messages across through instantly shareable videos.

Loom lets you send quick clips of yourself so you can get your point across and get back to work. Talk through a problem, explain your solution, or narrate a screenshare.

Loom was founded in 2016 by Joe Thomas, Shahed Khan, and Vinay Hiremath. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California.

Loom, through its standalone app or Chrome extension, makes it easy to capture your screen, record your front-facing camera, and narrate your video all at once - no switching apps or upload required.

Loom enhances the way people communicate at work by allowing them to send the next best thing to being there. With Loom, users can simply capture, record, and narrate a video that can be instantly shared with a simple link - no switching apps or upload required.


Loom has over 1.8 million people at 50,000 businesses sharing 15 million minutes of Loom videos per month.


Loom is backed by Sequoia, Kleiner Perkins, Point Nine Capital, General Catalyst, the Slack Fund and others. The company raised $30M from a Series B financing on Nov 26, 2019. This brings Loom's total funding to $44.8M to date.
