About Us

Piñata Farms is a team of 35 who have been responsible for some of the biggest cultural and tech successes of the last 10 years, spanning mobile, social, video, AR, gaming and music. We are backed by the top Silicon Valley VC's and some of the most influential strategic investors in media, tech, and pop culture. We have been quietly building this company for over a year and recently launched with very promising early engagement metrics and strong buzz in communities that drive pop culture including having been featured in the App Store. In fact, you may have already seem some of our work racking up millions of views for Diplo, Barstool Sports, Marshmello, Kendrick Lamar’s team, Benny Blanco, Shannon Sharpe, Dillon Francis, Lil Dicky, the Jonas Bros, at the top of Reddit and going viral on IG and Twitter consistently.

Our app is a completely novel video platform for the youth. Our technology gives users an infinite choice of content ingredients and characters to then re-imagine and communicate through new stories. Our mission is driven from behavioral research into how today’s connected communities work. From our insider’s view of digital media and social communities, we’ve helped establish new norms and know what’s coming next. A large portion of our team is dedicated to developing novel and proprietary computer vision technologies that differentiates us from the same old commoditized and shallow video apps. We’ve brought the best technologists and best people in pop culture together - Piñata Farms will change the mobile video game forever.
