In 2007, Max Haot, Daya Nanjundappa, Phil Worthington and Mark Kornfilt dreamed of a world in which every event was streamed live online. They launched Livestream (formerly Mogulus) as a free service that enabled anyone with a camera and an internet connection to stream live to a global audience. In 2008, Mogulus launched a “pro” service in partnership with Gannett to livestream the 2008 U.S. presidential election.
In 2009, the founders re-branded Mogulus as Livestream and shifted focus to professional livestreaming solutions. The live video startup quickly became the industry leader, working with the Associated Press, Clinton Global Initiative, World Economic Forum, SpaceX, Tesla, Spotify and other major brands. Organizations large and small use Livestream for concerts, conferences, panels, interviews, sports games, lectures, product launches, and occasionally, rocket launches.
Livestream has offices in New York, Los Angeles, London, Zaporizhia, and Bangalore. In 2014, Livestream’s Global Headquarters moved from the Google building in Manhattan to a new office space in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
