See Inside the Office of Odyssey

Odyssey is a social content platform that discovers and shares a chorus of millennial voices, amplified organically through social media. Odyssey was founded by two Indiana University students who realized that there was a huge lack of diversity of perspectives and ideas from the millennial generation in the media industry. On a mission to truly democratize content creation and give influencers the opportunity to express themselves and be heard, the pair created a new company called Odyssey.
