Gimlet Media

Leading independent producer of on-demand audio content

The Story

Gimlet Media is an award-winning audio content producer in the U.S. with 12 million monthly listeners from nearly 190 countries worldwide. The brand is known for its high quality, narrative audio content that covers a range of topics, including fiction, hip hop, and science & technology. The Company was founded in 2014 by Emmy and Peabody Award Winner Alex Blumberg and former BCG Consultant and WNYC Producer Matthew Lieber to fulfill growing demand for highly engaging on-demand audio content.

Stripes followed the Gimlet story since 2015; over the course of our meetings with Alex and Matt, we were consistently impressed by their commercial and editorial vision for the business. It was clear to us that Gimlet was poised to capitalize on the rapidly growing market for on-demand audio content. When raising its Series B, the founders chose to partner with Stripes for our deep operational expertise in digital media and track record of supporting entrepreneurs in the areas of team building and business development. We are thrilled to partner with the Gimlet team in its mission to build a truly category defining company in the audio space.
