Founded in 2013 by Joelle Hadfield and Jamie Lorenz, FightMe is a collaborative social video network that invites users to join in challenges and create their own. The app allows users to showcase any talent or opinion while allowing others the ability to join in directly. Users create a 30-second video about whatever they want to share with the world, then invite a dedicated global community to take part in a friendly challenge.
