We are delighted to announce that this year, we are awarding the Digital Trailblazer to Mark Little.
Mark has revolutionised the way we validate, distribute and consume media content. His vision, entrepreneurial spirit and willingness to take a risk has already resulted in the creation of two trailblazing businesses while inspiring others to make their mark through positive disruption.
Mark Little is CEO of Kinzen, an Irish start-up that wants to give every individual control of their daily news routine. Mark spent 20 years in broadcast news, as a foreign correspondent and TV anchor for RTE. In 2010, he founded the world’s first social news agency Storyful, which was sold to News Corp. He was Twitter’s VP of media partnerships in Europe and the MD of its International Headquarters in Dublin. He co-founded his second start-up in October 2017 with former Storyful colleagues Aine Kerr and Paul Watson.
We look forward to having him with us at the Spiders to accept his award.
Meet him and buy your tickets for the 2018 Spider Awards.
