Kinzen is a media tech startup that helps citizens engage with the publishers who inform, inspire and empower them.

Kinzen's mission is to ensure every individual has confidence in the quality and transparency of the information they consume every day.

Kinzen was founded in 2017 by Áine Kerr and Mark Little. The company is headquartered in Dublin, Leinster, Ireland.

Kinzen works with technology platforms that need the skills of human editors, and human editors who need to scale engagement through technology.

Kinzen harnesses the power of its editorial network to train machines which better understand disinformation and design tools which scale content moderation.


Kinzen defines content moderation as the protection of citizens from campaigns of deceptive and harmful information. They enable moderation policies that are consistent, transparent and responsive. Kinzen has accelerated its work with publishers during the Covid crisis and the US election to protect users from organised campaigns of harmful deception.
