About us

Watchers was founded in 2021 by visionary co-founders who have been the operational leaders of the company since then.

In our initial phase, we tested our ideas on our own B2C app and later transitioned the most successful strategies to a B2B SaaS platform.

Our vision for Watchers was to transform audiences' engagement with real-time and video content by offering interactive experiences.

Our approach is to ensure an intuitive and trusted environment for end-users, aiming to elevate their experience to the highest level. As a result, our community chats lead to remarkable growth in our partners' metrics, such as engagement, time spent, retention, and transactions.

Today, Watchers is a SaaS platform catering to a wide variety of global platforms, connecting with an impressive audience of over 20 million users across these platforms.

In 2023, Watchers was selected as one of the most promising AI start-ups for the Aim High Accelerator program by AWS.
