Sphere is a startup from a handful of people passionate about connecting mainstream and conversational media content. So far we’re best known for our Sphere Related Content Widget but we have a lot of other interesting things in the pipeline as well.
The four of us (Tony Conrad/ CEO; Martin Remy/ CTO; Steve Nieker/ CIO; and Toni Schneider/ Advisor) are strong believers in conversational media. We believe everyone has a voice, and our mission is to create exposure for each of them. By creating connections between contextually relevant mainstream media and blog content, we’re exposing a broader set of Internet readers to blog content, fundamentally giving more power to the people.
We’re based in a Pier building on the Bay in beautiful San Francisco but most of us work virtually (in Seattle; Boston, Denver; Vancouver; New York; Phoenix, Munich and the Bay Area).
We also have some incredibly talented Advisers around the table to provide mainstream and conversational media expertise: Matt Mullenweg (Founder of Automattic/ WordPress); Josh Macht (Managing Director Harvard Business School Publishing and former Editor of Time.com); Ron McCoy (former Chief Technology Officer of New York Times Digital and About.com); Mary Hodder (Founder/CEO of Dabble); and Scott Kurnit (Founder and former CEO of About.com).
Our team is supported by accomplished investors who share our vision: Doug Mackenzie, David Mahoney, Kevin Compton, Mike Winton, Phil Black, Vince Vannelli, and Will Hearst helped us get started with seed capital; Hearst Publishing, Trident Capital, and True Ventures fueled us with expansion capital after a successful beta.
