Joel Holland – Video Blocks


The humble origins of Joel Holland’s VideoBlocks go back to his days as a student at McLean HS in 2001. It wasn’t until graduating from Babson College in 2008 that the 30-year-old really started working on the company full-time. The subscription-based stock media company provides unlimited downloads of stock video, motion backgrounds, production music, and other sound and special effects. The 40-person company, which raised $10.5M in a series A round in 2012, had $18.9M in gross bookings for 2014 and is about to pass 100,000 paying subscribers. The company recently launched a marketplace that allows anyone to upload and sell stock video and keep 100% of the profits.
