Moj is an Indian video-sharing social networking service owned by Bangalore-based Mohalla Tech Pvt Ltd. It features special effects, emoticons, stickers and short videos that have a duration of 15 seconds to one minute under genres like dance, travel, singing, acting, comedy, and education.
“Creator Economy”, led by the rise of short-form videos, has become a global phenomenon in recent years. Today, there are more than 100M+ content creators globally, with increasing numbers of short video first creators. In India especially, the rise in the short video ecosystem has been exponential, with the growth in online video user base being almost 2x faster than major markets like China. Millions of creators across the length and breadth of the country are on these short video platforms today, creating trendy content, and many of them have gained massive stardom in a short span of time.
For many users, the journey of content creation starts as a medium to express their creativity and talents.With every new content they create, they learn and get better at it. They know how to tell their stories better, use camera angles and lights, and use different content creation tools, among other details. With little structured training and limited direct access to the creator communities, sometimes these learnings can take more time than they should, leading to longer times for these creators to reach a stage of improvement in their content quality to reach massive audiences.
We at Moj want all budding creators to have an equal opportunity at becoming successful, enjoy stardom and be role models for the next generation of creators. Moj For Creators (MFC) has been designed to identify budding original creators, providing them with all the necessary tools and training and place them on a course of accelerated growth to become mega influencers on Moj.
