Delivering the world’s quality information to the people who need it.

Our Mission

News should be for everyone. But it isn’t when it’s buried under cat videos—or when your internet is spotty—or when it’s in a filter bubble. That’s why we created SmartNews.

Our mission is to discover and deliver quality stories to the world. To accomplish this:

We are a machine learning company.

News should be impartial, trending and trustworthy. Our algorithms evaluate millions of articles, social signals and human interactions to deliver the top 0.01% of stories that matter most, right now.

We love content.

News should be sustainable. We support quality journalism and respect publishers by increasing their traffic and keeping 100% of their ad revenue.
