About Us

Unbiased news. Trending topics.

The news experience is frustrating.

News outlets that were respected in the past are now increasingly partisan and biased. That’s led to thousands of new sources but it’s hard to know which ones to trust.

And when you finally find an article you want to read you’re often forced to buy a full subscription just to read that one article.

We love reading the news and the above frustrating experience is one we encounter daily.

So we decided to apply our skills gained at Stanford, IIT Madras, and Waterloo to solve this problem close to our hearts and help the world love reading news again.

We believe that best news enlightens us, brings us together, and improves our communities.
