CEO Chris Pavlovski says the Canadian-based online video platform is experiencing strong growth because uses are "fed up" with larger platform.
"That exodus has been happening in the last year at a pace that I think will set in stone for the long term," Pavlovski told Fox Business on Tuesday. "Small creators are fed up with the larger platforms and are looking for an alternative solution. And I think they found it in Rumble."
Pavlovski said Rumble, which has branded itself as an alternative to video-sharing behemoth YouTube, had about 1.6 million monthly users at about the time of 2020 election and reached 31.9 million by the end of the 2021's first quarter.
He founded the site in 2013 and argues Big Tech companies like YouTube haven't create a fair environment for small users to share their beliefs and properly interact with other creators safely.
"We are building a fair ecosystem for everyone, regardless of whether you're on the left or the right," he said. "We welcome anyone to our platform, and we encourage everyone to use our platform, regardless of what your thoughts are."
