We believe in the liberating power of voice. There's never been a more important time for that than today. With Ayinde's background as a Speechwriter for President Obama, and as a serial entrepreneur who created the first version of the app that iHeartRadio uses today, we feel confident that he has the vision, technical skills and leadership ability to build an incredible business. As a founder, Ayinde is unbelievably dedicated and transparent.  We love that Nēdl's technology puts a premium on detecting your words in real-time to even the playing field and expose everyone to a larger audience. Nedl is a full-featured, innovative app. Going live to over 150M Alexa devices while having your words transcribed in real time is powerful and democratizing.  Bringing technology this big to life requires an extraordinary founder. Ayinde has proven his tenacity and ability to envisage big products time and time again. - Christie Pitts, GP at Backstage Capital

Our Team

Algorithms used by search companies and social media limit people from information discovery in the name of curation. We exist to democratize access to the microphone and information. Live transcription and keyword search of that live audio levels the playing field for discovery and enables content analysis on the fly to reduce bullying and hate.

Making it possible for everyone to have their own live radio show.

nēdl (as in, "the haystack") is an app that allows you to create your own live broadcast show — in 90 seconds. Share your link. Listeners tune in automatically — no app download necessary.

Live Product Demo

We started this company to give a voice to the voiceless by democratizing access to information and the microphone itself. In a world where many of us are confined to our homes as we do our part to "flatten the curve," more than ever, people need to be able to communicate while social distancing, express themselves, and have the ability to earn money from home.  That's what nedl is. A no friction way to amplify the voices of audio creators, teachers, actors, community leaders, elected officials and yes, celebrities.
