Content Syndicate

  • Born: August 2006
  • Headquarters: Dubai (hope I’ve got the right one) with a presence in Hyderabad
  • What It Does: As the name suggests, CS sources and delivers customized content. The customer list (on the website) is quite extensive. They syndicate content like press releases for public relations agencies, coffee table books, market research and exclusive stories for publishing firms (assume newspapers, magazines).
  • Funding: No information.
  • My Two Cents: Interesting idea. It could be wildly exciting (for journalists) if over time it is able to sign up mainstream journalists as contributors and syndicate content to mainstream media. Wouldn’t it be nice to auction your best story to the highest bidder? 🙂
