This is my longest running company, founded in 2003, after a brief stint living in Silicon Valley. I wanted to create a company rooted in the Indigenous community that I grew up in. We're a mid-sized digital agency serving Indigenous-focused organizations by maximizing their social impact through technology. Animikii means "Thunderbird" in Ojibwe and is based on Lekwungen territory.
ContentGems helps digital marketers find, curate and share engaging content. It is one of the leading "content curation" tools on the market and has thousands of users. I co-founded this business with 2 of my friends back in 2010 but acquired it in 2020 and brought it under the Animikii umbrella.
