Meet the Founders
We often get asked about how OPKIX was founded and who are the people behind it.
Well, we’re not your typical start-up story, but then again, OPKIX isn’t your typical start-up.
Our founders have a passion for life and wanted a little video camera that could quickly capture, easily edit and instantly share their experiences on their social media feeds. However, they felt that there wasn’t a video camera that could conveniently do so.
And after researching the market, they found that one didn’t exist, and that there’s actually a HUGE NEED in the market.
So they decided to band together to create a company to build a tiny, smart video camera and studio app to capture, edit and socially share life’s most memorable (and not-so-memorable) moments…and so OPKIX was born.
A snapshot of OPKIX:
- OPKIX was founded by friends – Yep, we defied the adage of going into business with friends and family.
- Orange County-based – As a start-up, we decided to locate our offices in Southern California as opposed to the Silicon Valley.
- All of our funding is by individuals – We DO NOT have any venture capital funding. ALL of our monies have been raised from individuals who happen to be our friends and family that believe in us.
As mentioned, our founders have diverse, entrepreneurial backgrounds. They’ve all have had their own successes. The one common bond that’s united them to OPKIX is their passion to create and launch something new and exciting.
We are stoked that you’re taking the journey with us and get ready to #recordplay.
