Creating new-age content or narratives for brands, startups and individuals, WYN Studio has created video content for brands such as HP and also produced podcasts for inspiring individuals and contemporary brands.
The company plans to use these funds to further strengthen their team with new hiring and also create more original content. While currently they are more focussed on all things audio, with a bit of video content for brands, they are also working on a pipeline of original digital content for various leading platforms. Currently revenue positive, they have seen an uptick in podcasting requests by brands and individuals to help them create and monetize their content.
