About The Content Exchange

Building a marketplace for stories together

Who are we?

The Content Exchange is an initiative of Joris van Lierop and Tom Schenkenberg. Together we developed the idea of ​​The Content Exchange, a ‘public CMS’ that everyone has access to.

Team TCE consists of media professionals, experienced developers and passionate marketers. We are building a network of story-makers, news hunters, publishers, producers and content marketeers who work together to share stories and create value. Every day we want to make TCE a step stronger together with our users. If you have any ideas, let us know !

Out TCE Team
By creating a place where editorial teams are connected, editorial teams can work together, while protecting rights and supporting revenue models.

- Joris van Lierop, Managing Director The Content Exchange

Our ambition

Around the clock everyone is publishing about breaking news, the red carpet, the front line, the exhibition floor, the stadium, the White House, the town hall. There is no editorial team that covers everything. Many good stories remain hidden gems, other good stories go viral without the creator seeing anything in return, stories that are rewritten 100 times, so that other good stories are never made.

The Content Exchange brings ‘makers’ and ‘publishers’ together. By doing business directly with each other, we can produce, publish and distribute more stories together. This creates a better earnings model for good stories that must be shared.
