Tyger Media (best known for serving as the parent company to Cablgram and Nutshell Today) recently raised $150,000 in seed funding from local investors, said a press release. The company said in the release that it has set its eyes on opening and operating a third bite-sized media vertical in Bangla.
Furthermore, their upcoming project, Robyn, aims to be a hub for creatives across the country, bridging the gap between local artists and clients abroad, added the press release.
The company said in the release that it believes in the importance of making news and content more accessible and digestible for the busy and modern news reader through the concept of bite-sized news with a focus on what matters to the younger demographic.
While Nutshell Today and Cablgram both started individual operations in August 2020, they would later merge in September 2021, forming the parent company, Tyger Media. Both verticals currently boast around 1 crore monthly viewers on their social media platforms.
The company is headed by its CEO and co-founder, Shadman Sharar Haque. Other co-founders, including Ibnul Earfan, Arshad Uzzaman, Shazzadul Haque Rafi, and Tanzil Kabir, hold key executive positions in the company. “Tyger Media started off as a hopeful merger between Nutshell Today and Cablgram back in 2021. It’s incredible to see how far our little project has come since then and how much further we can go with this investment,” said Shadman Sharar Haque, CEO of Tyger Media.
