About otter network

Putting creators first

Otter Network was founded on a simple premise: Put content creators back at the center of their own content models. We believe there are two core components to achieving that goal: Build the tools that empower creators to easily produce their own high-quality content using devices already in their pockets, and deliver a platform that helps them distribute and monetize it at a fair price. Headquartered in one of the largest tech capitals in the country, Otter Network’s leadership team is composed of lifelong video production experts, successful content creators and experienced technology professionals working together to make premier end-to-end video production seamless, easy and cost effective.
