About Zoom

Zoom provides a place for work to happen. The company offers a plethora of communication services so companies, classes, and communities can work together from anywhere. Its services include meetings, chat functions, rooms and workspaces, phone systems, video webinars, a marketplace of compatible products, and a developer platform. The company was founded by former Cisco engineer Eric Yuan in 2011. On its debut as a public company in 2019, shares surged 72%, valuing the company at over $16 billion. Today, the company is worth far more and is a household name in both the business and virtual happy hour worlds.

Zoom’s developer platform makes it stand out against its communication software peers. The platform offers APIs, Video SDKs for customizable video applications, Client SDKs for incorporating Zoom into desktop and mobile applications, and Webhooks to subscribe to events and notifications on Zoom. Zoom’s customizable capabilities make it the perfect flexible platform for groups to communicate and collaborate. Video and Meeting SDKs mean that companies and their clients can join and start meetings from a home website, and not have to go through the hassle of a third party virtual meeting tool.

Zoom not only provides tools for clients to build their best Zoom experience, but has established the $100 million Zoom Apps Fund which invests in a portfolio of companies who want to innovate new ways for customers to meet and communicate with Zoom. Zoom began as a startup, and knows the value of passionate investors in the success of a company and their vision.

The vision is simple: provide video communication that enables and inspires people to accomplish great things. Through its HD quality video platform and customizable applications and features, the company is here to stay. And in an increasingly virtual world, Zoom is here for us.
