In the era of globalization, Chinese entrepreneurs exude a dazzling light overseas. Clapper’s founder, Edison Chen, was one of them. Born in 1992, Edison has been a serial entrepreneur and angel investor. Most recently in 2020, he founded a video and community-driven social platform, Clapper App. It lately received $3M strategic financing led by IDG Capital, SIG Asia Investments, and Starling Ventures.
Clapper is one of the fastest-growing social media apps and it has attracted more than 2 million users of Gen X & Y globally. The app allows users to share the latest trends and their real lives as they unfold via short form videos. It uses ‘equal opportunity’ algorithms to show ordinary, real, and diverse communities of people through the sharing of short videos and live streams, instead of promoting influencing profiles with huge followings. It also works on a location-aggregation basis so users can see content from people nearby.
“On Clapper, you can feel like yourself,” said Edison Chen, Founder and CEO of Clapper. “Chances are, you want to express your authentic self – your beliefs, your views and your real life. On Clapper you can be heard, be seen, and be valued.”
