News can change the world, save lives, and bring us all closer together through empathy and understanding - but not if it isn’t read. Out of the hundreds of millions of articles and posts, how do we deliver the information that matters the most? How do we avoid the filter bubble of personalization and widen people’s interests and knowledge?
SmartNews is creating an entirely new model for the news industry. Our mission is to evaluate (in real-time) what makes a quality story and deliver the stories that matter to people who need it.
We’re not there yet, but we have a great head start. We’re one of the very few pre-IPO, unicorns focused on the news with over 400 U.S. publisher partners. We have more than 20M+ monthly active users worldwide, billions of channel interactions, and article pageviews generated per month. Founded in Tokyo in 2012, SmartNews has become the go-to source of news for users around the world.
