About ContentEngine

ContentEngine’ s origins trace back to 1996 as International Media Services (IMS), a Latin America-focused media services company operating in 18 countries. In 2008, Canada’s largest private equity group, OMERS Private Equity, and Marketwired acquired GNCS.  In 2016, GNCS became a part of NASDAQ and Hector Botero, the founder of GNCS, entered into negotiations to acquire GNCS back from NASDAQ, which resulted in the shutting down of GNCS and launching of ContentEngine to take over the existing business and expand with a greater focus on artificial intelligence (AI) applications in business,  financial, legal and scientific content.
