Today is a huge moment for Over. I’m proud to share that Over has been acquired by GoDaddy, the company that empowers everyday entrepreneurs around the world. As part of GoDaddy, we’ll continue to offer and develop the Over app, while also expanding our capability to serve entrepreneurs everywhere with the impactful creative tools they need to succeed online.
Our goal has been, and continues to be, to empower people’s dreams through creativity.
In 2012, we founded Over on a simple, core belief in creativity and self-expression. We believed that everyone is creative, but that the tools built to express that creativity are too complicated.
We wanted to “build guitars, not violins,” as my co-founder Aaron Marshall put it. To build tools that were easy to use, and powerful. Ones that anyone could pick up and quickly express themselves like a pro.
I’m beyond proud to say that we’ve come a long way in accomplishing that mission. It is a direct result of the immense effort put in by our dedicated team over many years.
The theme of gratitude runs deep at Over. We say “gratitude is the glue” and we believe that as long as it’s authentic, you can’t overdo it.
I want to say thank you, first and foremost, to our users. You are the ones that have enabled us to succeed. The entrepreneurs who have taken a risk and set up shop, determined to change your lives or the lives of others, and trusted us with your content and campaign needs. We have been incredibly lucky to grow to more than 1 million monthly active users, and the stories of success we hear in reviews and customer feedback channels are the ones that most motivate us every day.
