Dublin-based NewsWhip, a real-time media monitoring platform, announced on Wednesday that it has secured $13M (approximately €12M) in a round of funding from AshGrove Capital.
The funding will allow NewsWhip to accelerate its mission to identify and predict the news, narratives, and ideas that shape the world each day for users, including Google, Meta, The New York Times, Samsung, and the BBC.
The company is also planning to increase its headcount by 50 per cent by 2024.
“We’re excited to bring AshGrove Capital on board as investors,” says NewsWhip CEO Paul Quigley. “Their team recognises the transformation underway in the communication profession, and the unique position NewsWhip has in enabling that transformation.”
