The idea behind Mention came from the need for advanced monitoring of brand mentions on the web and social media. Built for conversational brands, Mention empowers them to find relevant conversations and step into the discussion in real-time.

For modern brands to make themselves heard in an increasingly chatty world, they need to know where - and how - to engage their audience. Mention delivers real-time alerts and sentiment analysis to equip conversational brands with the tools and insights to make an impact.

Mention's technology is highly complex - analyzing and interpreting millions of sources in real-time. Yet the experience is simple, as we wanted it: anyone can access a simple, comprehensive view of the most important conversations and the general tone of the discussion at a glance.

As brands delve deeper into a bustling, noisy, and social world, Mention gives them a leg-up on the competition to become truly social brands.

Co-founded by Arnaud in 2013, the Mention team has grown to over 50 with offices in Paris and London.
