Tynt among Top 10 Data Collectors online

by Rob Lewis | Business

Calgary-born Tynt Multimedia has been on quite he ride since launching in 2007.

In April of 2010 they announced that they had raised $8 Million of additional venture capital financing on top of the $5 Million Series A round from the previous year.

So what is Tynt and why have they been able to raise two rounds in two years?

Tynt measures user engagement and they're responsible for the Tynt Insight content sharing analytics service. Through its unique patent-pending method of anonymously detecting copy and paste behavior on any website, Tynt Insight enables online content owners to indentify, with pinpoint accuracy, exactly which content their visitors find most engaging, and how they are sharing it. 

Tynt technology is currently being used on over 500,000 sites worldwide, including CondeNast, NBC and Time properties, as well as SportsIllustrated and TMZ.

Today Panorama Capital Managing Director (and Tynt investor) Chris Albinson tweeted that Tynt is one of the Top 10 'data collectors' globally.

Tynt's growth trajectory has been impressive and they are now responsible for almost 2% of data requests online. To put that in perspective, Doubleclick the leader in the space with 16% of requests followed by Comscore with 12%.

Look out for more from Tynt in 2011.
