Who we are

Recognized as one of Canada’s fastest-growing companies, Lumen5 is an online video creation platform powered by machine learning and designed for businesses, brands, and creatives.

Launched in 2017, our mission is to make video marketing accessible to everyone. We believe that video is the most powerful tool for storytelling, but not everyone has the skills or resources required to produce thumb-stopping videos. We created Lumen5 to solve this problem.

We currently have over 700,000 users and work with notable brands including Salesforce, SAP, Siemens, and The Economist. Our company has won growth awards from Canadian Business and the Globe and Mail, and we were crowned the winner of the New Ventures BC Competition 2019 which recognizes innovation in BC’s tech sector.

We now have our sights set on revolutionizing how businesses create video and we’re looking for like-minded folks to join us in elevating Lumen5 to the next level.
