Spiny Team

Driving Digital Publishing

Traditional approaches to building digital publishing assets are expensive and cumbersome, especially when it comes to understanding user behavior, revenue generation, and editorial performance. Spiny was born out of our frustrations running publishing companies, where growth was achieved with large technical teams and complex technologies. The current tools on the market primarily focus on content and editorial analytics. We saw the need to develop a product that ties together all the core pillars of digital publishing - audience, editorial, and revenue.

Now with Spiny, digital publishers, large and small, have a tool that provides a full 360-degree view of what a publisher needs to grow sustainably, maximize revenue and make effective real-time decisions. - Nana Nyantekyi, Founder of Spiny.ai

Since our founding, Spiny has been on a mission to transform the operations, strategy, and growth of digital publishing businesses. Now our Array of people are leading this charge globally, with us continually expanding in all areas.
