Collective Artists Network Acquires Terribly Tiny Tales in Strategic Expansion Move

Collective Artists Network, a leader in the new media space, has announced its acquisition of Terribly Tiny Tales (TTT), India's premier storytelling platform. This move aligns with Collective Artists Network's goal to become the country's top new media company rooted in popular culture and expanding its influence in the media industry.

TTT started in 2013 as a text-based flash fiction platform on Facebook, founded by Anuj Gosalia. Seeing a need for organic storytelling amid internet memes and GIFs, Gosalia created TTT to offer meaningful and relatable content to digital audiences. Over the years, TTT has grown into a versatile content platform with a community of over 5 million creators and content enthusiasts. It now operates across Instagram, YouTube, and other social media, with millions of loyal followers.

Vijay Subramaniam, Founder and CEO of Collective Artists Network said, "My vision has always been to build scale by creating an ecosystem that supports the best forms of storytelling for creators. The acquisition of Terribly Tiny Tales fits perfectly into our expansion plan to establish Collective Artists Network as the preeminent new media company centered around creators and content. We endeavor to empower the entire creator ecosystem with our network, and this acquisition is another step toward achieving that goal."

TTT's transformation from a micro-fiction platform to a comprehensive content business is marked by its impressive reach and impact. The platform's weekly engagement reaches 25 million people, making it a valuable partner for brands looking to share their stories. TTT has collaborated with major brands and created original content, including web series, short films, and animated shorts.

Anuj Gosalia, Founder and CEO of Terribly Tiny Tales said, "Joining forces with Collective Artists Network is a definitive moment for Terribly Tiny Tales. This partnership will enable TTT to leverage Collective's extensive resources and expertise, allowing us to amplify our reach and impact in the storytelling domain. We are thrilled to be part of this burgeoning force that values creativity, storytelling, and innovation as much as we do."

Since its inception, Collective Artists Network has evolved from talent management to a dynamic new media entity. The company launched BigBang.Social last year, a tech platform connecting creators with opportunities for commerce, brand collaboration, upskilling, and community building, fostering a vibrant creator community.

The company's recent acquisitions, including Under 25 Universe and the Gruhas Collective Consumer Fund, highlight its commitment to expanding its portfolio and supporting young entrepreneurs and start-ups. The acquisition of Terribly Tiny Tales marks a significant milestone in Collective Artists Network's mission to redefine creator-led new media businesses, positioning the company to engage more deeply with diverse audiences in today's dynamic media landscape.
