How We Started

The idea was simple.

Make it easy to access public information living on the Internet, and use it to deliver valuable insights that weren’t accessible without technology.

Intelligent media monitoring solution.

We started by transforming the traditional press clippings service. We now go beyond news monitoring by adding social media listening and building dashboards for real-time analytics and benchmarking.


We are a leading media intelligence company, with San Francisco headquarters, offices in 55 cities on six continents, and 25,000 clients.

Our nonprofit African incubator, MEST, is a great example as to how we use technology to bridge gaps not only in information, but also in socioeconomics.

We’ve launched Shack 15, a data science co-working space in London hosting bright startups that are leading the charge in transforming business through artificial intelligence.

The original idea hasn’t changed.

As much as we’ve grown and scaled, Meltwater continues to reimagine the way that unstructured data outside the firewall can be used to improve business.
