We’re delighted to announce that Chartable is now part of the Spotify band.
Harish and I started Chartable because we believe podcasting is a powerful, important, and undervalued medium—one that’s been held back by a lack of data.
We saw this firsthand when we launched our Hacker Daily podcast—recording each episode in our closets—almost 4 years ago. The data gap between podcasting and other digital media absolutely shocked us. Without quality data, it was hard for creators to grow their audiences and hard for advertisers to determine if their ads were actually working.
Over the last 4 years, we’ve made great strides in closing that gap.
Chartable has always innovated first and foremost for podcast publishers. In the last month alone, we analyzed over 2 billion downloads, serviced 2 million SmartLink clicks and measured over 600 million SmartPromo impressions. With Spotify and Megaphone’s technology and intelligence in hand, Chartable can now bring more accurate, actionable insights and tools to podcast publishers around the world.
We’re grateful to our customers, partners, our team (past and present), our investors, and our friends and family who have supported us on this adventure. Special thanks to the amazing folks at Initialized Capital, Lukas Biewald for encouraging us to think bigger, Telos Advisors who advised us on this deal, and Andrew Sparks and his team at Goodwin Procter for all their help along the way.
As a part of Megaphone, we’re beyond excited to continue Chartable’s mission to help publishers understand and grow their audiences. We can’t wait to share what we have in store!
