Who we are
Our story & team

Here’s our story: A few years ago, Ayaz Nanji, ICW’s founder, left his audience development job with Google to travel across America, and while on the road, he began helping tech startups and enterprises with their content needs.

Eventually there was too much work for one person to handle and Valerie Conners, a fellow content expert who had managed editorial at large tech and media companies, joined as co-founder. In time they brought on more people like themselves — highly experienced professionals who wanted the freedom to operate remotely — to help.

That’s how ICW Media came to be. Even as we’ve grown, we’ve remained proudly independent and focused on just one area: content for tech firms. We are a group of seasoned specialists — strategists, editors, writers, and designers — who have all worked with top tech startups and enterprises (want to join us?).
