Wemark - disrupting the way creators get paid
Co-Founder Roy Meirom and the team at Wemark are on a mission to empower photographers and other content creators all over the world.
Quite often, when professional photographers want to sell their images online to people looking for images for their website, brochures and ads, they use services like Shutterstock and Getty Images, which take up to 85% of what they earn.
Wemark uses blockchain technology to enable peer-to-peer transactions between creators and customers - ensuring security, authenticity and most of all, transparency. Customers can buy at a discount, directly from creators, who keep much more of their revenue and rights to their content.
They have plans to change the way other digital marketplaces are built, too, helping creators and customers to save money along the way.
Wemark is backed by leading global investors, and its advisory board includes some of the biggest names in stock photography, blockchain technology and online marketplaces.
