The Company

About us:

Social video clips have grown massively but so many are just so… "so what?"  In February 2013, tons of people all jumped on the Harlem Shake bandwagon - everyone saw the fun meme and a huge number thought to themselves “I can have a go at that” and uploaded their own version.


VidiBee was created to harness both the mobile video clip phenomenon and the wide desire to join in a themed social event – adding purpose and the opportunity to engage and have fun.  And with that purpose the possibility of prizes!  Whether videos of personal thoughts, skills, talents or skits, the Buzz in VidiBee is alive!


Video competitions is the first step in the drive towards a greater video clip platform full of user video clips on different user-supported channels.
