Otta's take

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

Creating, distributing and managing digital content can be complex, time-consuming and difficult, especially at scale. Contentful solves this problem by centralizing all content management into one API-based system.

Since founding in 2013, Contentful has grown to become one of the largest companies of its kind. It now serves thousands of customers, many of which are enterprises such as Danone and Bang & Olufsen. Importantly, the company has continued to improve its offering, for example by partnering with eSSENTIAL Accessibility to offer a way for users to achieve ADA compliance.

In recent years, Contentful has grown its executive team, attracting top talent from companies like Zendesk and Atlassian which has helped to accelerate its ambitious growth strategy. It has also expanded its relationship with AWS, launching the Contentful Composable Content Platform in AWS Marketplace, a key move that will help to broaden its reach and ensure it remains a key player in the competitive CMS market.
