GIPHY has redefined the way GIFs are searched, shared, discovered and created. We are leading a revolution in the way we communicate and changing the way people share information.

In just over a year, we’ve grown over 500%. We’ve partnered with leading social networks, messengers and apps to let the world talk in GIFs. We’ve partnered with the leading studios in Hollywood, TV networks, music labels, production companies, sports leagues and thousands of other content partners to create GIFs. Our GIF making tools are used by some of the biggest publishers on the internet and the most creative people in the world. And, our apps help everyone find, share, discover, and create the perfect GIF.

This year, we’re bringing GIFs to everyone. That’s why we’re proud to announce a raise of $55 million in Series C funding, led by Lightspeed Venture Partners with participation from General Catalyst Partners, RRE, Betaworks, Lerer Hippeau Ventures, CAA and other existing investors.

Wherever your conversation may be, GIPHY GIFs are there. Our library is full of classic pop culture moments and the coolest ones that just happened. With real-time coverage of the news, sports, and entertainment, we’re fueling your conversations with the best, timeliest content possible.

We didn’t stop there.

GIPHY CAM made such a splash, Apple named it one of the Best 25 apps in 2015. And our GIF Maker is used on the daily by partners like FOX, the NBA, Nike, and Paramount Pics… if it’s an official GIF, it’s made with GIPHY.

This year we’re going to make it more real-time than ever before.

You’ve seen some of our work recently at The Golden Globes with Lady Gaga’s less-than-subtle Leo bump, taken from a live feed of the award show.

Or maybe you saw it LAST NIGHT at the Grammys, where we provided you minute by minute GIF coverage of the night:

You saw it with GIPHY CAM on the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Red Carpet:

And, in the coming months, you’re going to see it from more and more places, and you’re going to see more GIFs from more of our users—GIFs from studios and GIFs from phones, GIFs from celebs and GIFs from home.

If it’s happening in the world, it’s happening on GIPHY.
