Help us unlock the value of the spoken word

Help us build our magic

Trint is the scale-up that blows manual transcription out of the water. We solve the pain point of manual transcription by applying AI to automate the process, empowering users to focus on extracting more value from the spoken word. Trint’s browser-based productivity platform for collaborative media and content analysis changes the way professionals work with audio and video to produce content and insights.

Trint’s bold aspirations are focused on leading innovation and growth in the emerging voice economy. Google’s Digital News Innovation Fund awarded us two grants to further Trint’s innovation in audio/video content management. Trint is reshaping voice-driven value creation by integrating into existing enterprise workflows in big verticals like media, research and video production. The company’s vision is shaped by its CEO and Founder Jeff Kofman, an Emmy-winning foreign correspondent and war correspondent who estimates he transcribed thousands of hours of interviews, news conferences and speeches during his 30+ year broadcast career.

Customers include: The Associated Press, The New York Times, ESPN, Vice News, The Washington Post, Thomson Reuters, Fox Sports, Der Spiegel, Deutsche Welle, Yale University, Nike and AirBnB.
