Sherpa Digital Media

About the company that is innovating virtual events and streaming video.

Sherpa's Story

From its inception in 2011, Sherpa has recognized the way organizations desire to communicate with Enterprise Video and the solutions available to serve that need. For far too long, companies have been ill-equipped to address the increasing demands of modern video – stuck on poor user experiences, inadequate security, and technical barriers to wide user adoption across the enterprise. Sherpa’s mission is to bridge that gap by providing a modern Enterprise Video platform, solutions to enable high quality video creation and viewing, and an environment that secures video asset access and delivery.

Sherpa quickly gained the business of some of the world’s premier companies and developed its modern platform into the product it is today. Now, the Sherpa platform empowers companies to share immersive video experiences to employees, partners, and customers with a new level of simplicity and scale. Sherpa’s value extends beyond its technology. As a long-term trusted partner, Sherpa provides its customers with guidance, best practices, and thought leadership that’s backed by decades of combined expertise in enterprise video architecture and live streaming event production.

Sherpa is based in the San Francisco Bay Area and backed by several of the region’s premier venture investors.
