Below is our recent interview with Conchi Ruiz Cabello, Marketing and Strategic Partnerships Manager at Genially:
Q: What is Genially?
A: Genially is an online tool for creating interactive and animated content. With Genially, anyone can create incredible communication experiences easily, quickly, and for free. The creation types available include presentations, infographics, interactive images, maps, quizzes, resumes and calendars. Given its versatility, the tool excels in both corporate and educational contexts.
The company was founded in 2015 in Spain 🙂 and over the last year, the company has opened an office in New York and tripled its user base reaching 10 million creators.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Genially has raised $20M with its latest round of funding. This Series B financing was led by the U.S. venture capital firms 645 Ventures and Owl Ventures and aims to accelerate the company’s goal to set a global standard in content creation.
Our priorities include the growth of our community along with the constant evolution of our product. Making Genially a global and iconic company has always been part of our vision; we want to create a new standard in communication with interactive content at its core. We believe that this round is an important step towards realizing this vision, not so much for the capital received but rather because of the value offered by our new partners.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: The ease of use and the visual appeal of the resulting interactive and animated creations have always pushed Genially forward to make a name for itself among learning, marketing, graphic design, and communication professionals. Genially has over 10 million creators, and our “geniallys” have billions of views. Our community is present in over 190 countries and boasts especially heavy use in countries such as France, Spain, Mexico, and Colombia, and rapid growth in 2021 in countries such as the United States, Brazil, and Italy.
Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: We have a lot coming in the next few months 🙂 We are planning to boost our growth in the Americas, supported by a dedicated team in the region (yes, we are hiring!). We want to accelerate our ambitious product roadmap: our success is based on how much value we can deliver to our users and customers through the product.
Q: During the last year and a half we’ve also been working on a Team’s version. It will be our next big product launch, and we are super excited.
A: In the long term, we want to make interactive content a new standard in communication and education, with Genially leading this movement.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: The team, without a doubt! The culture of the company is superb, with a highly motivated team that feels valued and works happily towards a common goal. We feel very lucky to be part of the Genially family.
