We want to improve the way organisations explore and benefit from knowledge and information by empowering business professionals team with easy access to relevant intelligence based on their individual workflow, while giving them the ability to easily share curated insights and become experts in their own field.
We live in a time of fundamental change where the foundations of information are being challenged and traditional rules on how content is created, shared and consumed has been upended.With more people creating and gaining access to knowledge, it has become a challenge for marketing teams and analysts to cut through the noise and effectively feed their organisation with relevant knowledge to inform decisions and/or to engage with their audience.At Cronycle, we believe it’s time to help organizations improve their workflow by empowering their employees with the ability to curate, collaborate, and distribute content in a fast and easy way, while providing them with the opportunity to educate themselves and become experts in their own field – all from one place.Large teams working across multiple time zones, marketers looking for inspiration for their next campaign, analysts evaluating insightful data for market decisions or business students collaborating with their classmates can all leverage the Cronycle platform.With users in over 800 cities and a passion for technology, we’d like to think we’re breaking the barrier of time and information overload by turning the access to knowledge into an effective though empathetic journey.
Right Relevance became part of the Cronycle family to further our data science capabilities with deeper topical content for our users.

Our big investment
We received our A round of funding for over $2.5m from our partner Andurance Ventures.
The first iteration of Cronycle went live, since then, thousands of companies have joined Cronycle as their go-to platform for curating content around the web.
The idea was born
Cronycle was started by two entrepreneurs in London who wanted to create a platform to help businesses discover, collect and share digital content.
Founder & CEO
Nicolas Granatino started his career in 1995 in London at J.P. Morgan in investment banking. In 2000 he moved to LabMorgan, J.P. Morgan’s e-finance incubator aiming to transform the financial services industry. LabMorgan was an early investor in PayPal and numerous electronic marketplaces. In 2003, he left J.P. Morgan to pursue cancer research at the University of Oxford. In 2011, he returned to the VC world to invest in early stage tech ventures focusing on media/education digital start-ups and blockchain-based startup and co-founded Andurance Ventures. He co-founded Cronycle as he saw an opportunity in the market to make a synthesis between enterprise-level knowledge management platforms and smartphone-constrained applications. Since August 2016, he has worked on digital identities in anticipation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) due to become effective in May 2018. He firmly believes that this regulation will herald a new privacy by design thinking rather than the prevailing and dominant Big Data one. He is a graduate of Ecole Polytechnique in France and holds a D. Phil in Chemistry from the University of Oxford.
