Irish mobility player ZEUS raises €5m to expand globally

Spotify has announced its acquisition of Dublin-based online content analysts Kinzen, as the company pledges to improve its ability to address harmful content.
Kinzen, which was set up by Storyful founder Mark Little and ex-Facebook executive Áine Kerr, was launched in 2019.

The company provides data and research to help firms to detect and monitor misinformation, hateful content, violent content, violent extremism and dangerous organisations. In particular, the company said, it has developed expertise in the moderation of podcasts.

Spotify and Kinzen began a partnership in 2020, and today it was confirmed that the podcast giant has acquired the Irish-based firm.
