When You Can’t Afford to Be Ignored

In 2012, four friends met in a cafe to solve a problem: How can you communicate a message without putting your audience to sleep, or driving them to check Facebook under the table during your presentation? The answer seemed simple - how about one of those great animated videos! But working with an animation studio can take weeks and cost thousands. Our four friends decided, right then and there, to create a tool that everyone can use when they need their message to make an impact and when they can’t afford to be ignored. Powtoon was born.

Powtoon's Mission:
So Everyone Can Animate!

Powtoon is the world’s leading, most user-friendly and most intuitive animation software. With Powtoon, anyone - even if you don’t know a pixel from a proxy server - can create engaging, animated videos with a professional look and feel.

Our greater vision is to bring a touch of awesomeness to everyday communications. Whether you’re teaching a class, sending a note to a friend or pitching a product to potential investors - just Powtoon it.

Powtoon Biz

Every business needs to convey their message and value in an attention-grabbing way. Using animation knocks your viewers off their tired diet of snoozer slides, and allows them to imagine being addicted to your product before they ever lay hands on it.

But the time and costs of creating a professional animated video has - until now - made animation a no-go. In the before time, creating animated videos for your business was only possible with the help of costly professionals and studios. Between design, animating, hosting and distribution, a 90-second animated video could cost anywhere from $2,000 to $25,000!

We’re here to prove to you that everyone can animate - even you - with professional results. That’s why Fortune 500 companies, freelancers, SMBs, startups, Ivy League universities, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, government offices and over 30 million global users choose Powtoon when they can’t afford to be ignored.

Some Awesome Facts


We’re all conditioned since childhood to trust and enjoy cartoons, therefore animation makes a deep impact. It also uses all three major types of learning modes, making it easier for your message to stay. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then animation is worth a million of them!
