The Vidy story begins at Harvard, where Patrick Colangelo founded the company in his dorm room.
Late one night, while he was reading an article on his phone, Patrick conceived of the idea of fusing short hyper-relevant videos underneath related lines of text on the page, and in that flash... Vidy was born. In the days ahead, Patrick went on to invent Vidy's nested video product and the Vidy Instant Purchase layer, which now rests atop millions of web pages.
Joined by his Cofounder, Matthew Lim, who heads Asia operations and leads an expansive BD team in Shanghai, together the two friends have grown the company into a global enterprise that stretches from East to West.
Today, Vidy has an engineering and sales team based in New York, San Francisco, and Shanghai with team members who have previously sold their own software companies, amassed 10s of millions of customers, and have enjoyed decades of successes in the software development world.
The Vidy team has been together for years, bonded by mutual admiration, friendship, and ambition to build a platform that can truly change human lives for the better.
As believers in technologies that exist for the betterment of the human colossus, we have collectively devoted ourselves to the mission of letting content be found, consumed, and enjoyed in a way that finally safeguards and truly garnishes us.
