Hamburg-based creation platform streamlines Social- and AMP Story production in app/software duo.

HAMBURG, 24. Juli 2018 — Cutnut, a Hamburg-based tech startup raised a business angel round of investment to further develop its vertical story editing software and connected mobile app. A key component of the investment is doubling down on development efforts — in part by hiring Joerg Tews as CTO. After previously being funded by the Next Media Accelerator and successfully completing their 6 months development program, Cutnut is now preparing the launch of its desktop-based editing software.

The product is specifically tailored towards the visualization and production of high-quality vertical story content. The main goal is to enable beginners and professionals to create vertical content with ease through the use of templates and a playful UI. Furthermore, it provides an all-in-one tool to serve both social channels (Snapchat, Instagram etc.) and websites/blogs/newsletters through AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages, by Google). With its mobile app, Cutnut also provides an easy way to collect UGC and gives the software users the fastest available channel to publish social stories.

Key Benefits of Cutnut:

  • Professional animated templates
  • AMP + Social Stories in one
  • Universal iframe embedding anywhere
  • Super intuitive User Interface and Workflow
  • Cost efficient pay-as-you-go pricing

Being able to produce and distribute vertical content with one tool is an increasing business need for many publishers and brands because of the ever-increasing number of daily active users on the format. Currently, more than 1 billion people are consuming stories every day, which makes it the most important channel to reach particularly younger audiences. Cutnut is working together with a number of publishers and advertising industry leaders to gather feedback and further improve the product.
