Our origin story is one that you may have heard before, but we kind of doubt it. A group of ambitious individuals set out to solve a complex problem with a relatively simple solution. More on that later. From the metaphorical basement of a three billion-dollar tech unicorn, a platform was born. Lucidpress grew in a short period of time from a little sprout of a drag-and-drop editor to Sequoia-level sophistication. It took work, unwavering dedication, and a team of real masterminds. Like the unstoppable force of crashing dominos, the ideas began to take on a life of their own, sending us on a trajectory that would lead to the game-changing product that we sell today. If drag-and-drop could make content creation more accessible, what would ensure relevance, impact, and, dare we say, quality? While we believe creativity is endless and you never know who holds the next great idea, we'd argue that not all of those concepts, when translated, are on-brand. And so, we created a solution for that too. With intuitive and lockable templates, Lucidpress became the go-to brand-templating platform, and delivered a content creation formula that gave companies momentum to reach their audience faster.
After over six-million users, 600+ enterprise customers, and no plans to stop the idea-generation sprint that would ultimately raise the bar both for the platform, and for our customers' content game, Lucidpress was then acquired by Charles Thayne Capital. With real 2021 energy, this group of savvy investors recognized the potential for a modern brand-templating platform poised to help businesses build content at scale. Like a butterfly emerging from its pandemic cocoon, Lucidpress was now independent, and the company's future felt destined for greatness. July of 2022 dawned the Marq of a new era. Lucidpress rebranded to Marq and we set our eyes on the grandest of visions yet: Radically change how organizations approach brand management. In a lot of ways, this is only the beginning. Where we go from here is entirely up to our customers' intensity for greatness and our unmatched enthusiasm to come along for the ride, delivering the very best tools to help them get there.
From our point of view? The possibilities are endless.
On your mar(q).
