Three Indian companies, namely Guardian Link, Pepper Content and Scalenut, have found a place in the latest report by Synaptic which highlights the high-growth companies driving the creator economy in 2022.

Synaptic, an alternative data insights platform focused on providing actionable insights to global financial firms and investors, has published its “15 high-growth companies in the Creator Economy” report.

The report highlights 15 global companies that ranked high on the Synaptic Growth Index — an algorithm that ranks companies’ performance based on multiple alternative data points.

The creator economy is driven by rapid growth in content creation, distribution, and platforms. While the human element of the creator economy is clear — producers, consumers, supporters, and collectors — there are multiple technologies and business models that define the interactions and interface between them.

Powered by these software-driven tools and active communities, the sector has witnessed multiple technological advancements and trends — such as Web3, NFTs, new avenues for audience creation and expansion, and cutting-edge services for creators.

Sectors covered in the report include:

NFT marketplaces and platforms: NFT marketplaces allow creators to store and display their NFTs, and consumers to buy and auction them for crypto or cash.

Popular companies - Rarible, Guardian Link.

Tools enabling content creators: These are tools that support creation and distribution of text content, video and music, and other associated services. Apart from creation tools, they also help creators with monetization and publishing across platforms.

Popular companies - Pepper Content, Contentfly, Substack, Beacons AI, Scalenut, Spotter, Pod People, Groover, Statusphere.

Influencer marketing platforms: Online influencer marketing platforms are designed to assist brands in their marketing campaigns. While these platforms primarily provide tools to find product promoters and agencies, additional features include relationship management, campaign management, influencer markets, external company statistics, and content enhancement.

Popular companies: Invideo, Woomio, Insense, Influencity.
