Founding story

Trint was born in an Airbnb in Florence, Italy, in 2014.

Founder Jeff Kofman, an Emmy Award-winning reporter and foreign correspondent, had lived with the frustration of manual transcription his entire career.

    In his 30 year broadcast career, Jeff reported from more than 40 countries, covering many of the biggest stories of his generation. He won two Emmys, a duPont Award and an Edward R. Murrow Award. He wanted to know why he was still transcribing interviews, speeches and news conferences in the 21st century the same way journalists did in the 1970s: manually.

    Jeff wondered whether there was a way to leverage the increasingly accurate output of artificial intelligence (A.I.) and speech-to-text to do the heavy lifting of transcription. After collaborating with a small team of developers, they invented the Trint Editor. Because he had lived the pain, Jeff instantly saw its potential.
